This article offers a brief list of tips to ensure that you have a successful parent-teacher conference. When it comes time to talk, will you be ready? These six tips could make the difference between an OK meeting and a great conference! If you feel there is a problem, schedule a meeting. Be on time! Take notes at the conference. If something isn't clear, ask the teacher to explain it. Try not to get angry or say something you might regret. Do not bring babies or small children to the conference. Because time is so short, no time should be spent chasing after a younger child or tending to a baby.
