How can you find out if your child is sharing his toys and behaving in school? Take our quiz.

1. Teacher: "Bobby hasn't been too consistent with putting his blocks away during pickup time." Parent replies:

  • "Well, he cleans up some of the time, doesn't he?"
  • "Oh yes. He's a little lazy, isn't he?"
  • "He does the same thing at home. What can we do about it?"

2. Teacher: "Carrie is such a big help to me. She's always willing to give the teachers a helping hand." Parent says:

  • "That's great to hear."
  • "I'm glad she likes to help you, but how is she with the other children? Does she make friends easily?"
  • "Oh no, is she becoming the teacher's pet?"

3. Teacher: "Ryan has a hard time listening during storytime." Parent says:

  • "Well, he probably just gets fidgety sitting there for so long."
  • "I don't read to him much. Are there any books you recommend for his age?"
  • "Oh, that's unfortunate, isn't it?"

4. Teacher: "Unfortunately, we had an incident with Jessica today. She was hitting several of the other children." Parent replies:

  • "Oh my goodness. What do you think brought that behavior on? Well, there are some things going on at our house that you need to be aware of."
  • "Well, one of the kids must have provoked her, because there is no hitting going on in my house."
  • "That's not like her."

5. Teacher: "Adam has been having difficulty sharing the toys with the other children." Parent says:

  • "Well, do the other kids share with him?"
  • "Really?"
  • "Really? What can I do at home to help him understand what sharing is all about?"
