Got all of our issues out in the open last night. My daughter was very forward and straight talking when airing her grievances, but my youngest found it harder. But we still put his case and know it will be listened to.
He found it hard to criticise teachers. Afterwards we chatted as we walked home. I told him about some bad teachers I had at school, including the art teacher who would use a red pen on your sketches!
I also pointed out that teachers are just people doing a job - if they are doing something wrong that is affecting you they need to be told. You should not suffer for the sake of politeness!
Looking forward to seeing the changes!
