2. Tell your child that you support them and that you want them to be happy.
3. Give it a little time. Often, once a child becomes more familiar and comfortable with a teacher and their classroom routine, things improve.
4. Don’t listen to gossip. Don’t fall prey to gossiping parents who may or may not be giving you information that is helpful for your child. Make an effort to establish your own relationship with the teacher and encourage your child to remain positive as they get to know their teacher better.
5. Your child is going to meet many people throughout their lifetime. Some they will like, others they will not. Use this as a teaching moment for your child. Help them to work through the early tough days by giving your kids helpful clues for working with the teacher. Make it a point to meet with the teacher and to let them know your child is uncomfortable. My experience has been that a good teacher will go out of their way to reach out when a student is unfeeling uncomfortable.
