In today’s fast-paced world, parents often find themselves caught in the crossfire of conflicting expectations between their children’s school and their own values at home. As a former teacher turned parenting coach, I’ve witnessed firsthand the frustration and angst that arises when these expectations collide. In this blog post, I delve into the common challenges faced by parents in balancing the demands of school with the needs of their family. From navigating homework battles to managing classroom rules, I offer practical insights and strategies to help parents assert their autonomy and prioritize their family’s well-being. Join me as we explore how to find harmony in parenting and education, one decision at a time.
