Talking about Grades
Today is Parent Teacher conferences at school. I write this blog with a knot growing in my stomach! I dread Parent Teacher conferences. We homeschooled for ten years and I now remember one of the perks–I was the teacher so our Parent Teacher conferences weren’t too bad and very short!!
Please don’t get me wrong, I really don’t think there will be many concerns about the boys’ grades or social behavior. But, the thought of sitting across the table from a teacher and discussing grades scares me. It always has. When I was in school I dreaded those moments. In college I had to discuss a grade with my advisor–I still remember that conversation.
The boys have wonderful teachers and I enjoy talking with them in the hall, at games, after school. But put me across a table from them with a grade book in their hands and my nerves start growing. It’s crazy, isn’t it?
How about you? If you have PT conferences do they make you nervous? Did they when you had kids in school?
Maybe this is normal and all the parents waiting in the gym today will be feeling the same way!
I hope you enjoy your Friday. I’ll be glad when mine is over!
