    My advice is the sandwich technique when communicating with families pertaining to their child. Begin with positive, then the truth of the meeting, then follow with positive. It is imperative to form a base relationship with families, this can be done through pick up and drop off. Remaining present and intentional in conversations is a must.

    Begin with the positive note and make sure if they are ready to listen something which you want them to understand then begin the conversation

    my advice is to keep constant communication with the family, treat them with respect, don’t be judgmental, and also always make sure to communicate the positives and negatives with them.

    To create and maintain good partnerships with families, we need to acknowledge that they are the primary caregivers. Always work to find a solution when there’s conflict. Remember that the goal is to help the child(ren) succeed, and working together with families is the best way to achieve that.

    Vice for creating and maintaining a healthy relationship with children’s parents is communication not only one negative but positive and showing that parent how old is a child is growing and developing and getting educated and letting the parents voice the concerns and being supportive in knowing that I can help with our concerns if there is any in that I care about their child to meet regularly and really make them seem important enough that I’m just meeting with everyone making them feel like we have a connection one on one.

    Be polite and professional. Always set expectations of behavior for the child. never imply that the child is bad or naughty, but bring up concerns in a concise way with concrete evidence.

    the advice I have for creating and maintaining a good relationship with children’s parents is to always be welcoming, be friendly and continue to be that way every day. to have open and positive communication about their child as much as possible, and to keep the parent aware of opportunities and what their child will be learning. It is also important for you to gain trust so that if you need to bring up a concern, the parents feel as though you are knowledgeable and trustworthy. It is also important not to blame parents and let them know that they are their child’s teacher first and are the mostt important piece to their learning and development.

    Build a trusting relationship. Be honest and transparent but also gracious and sympathetic. Provide the same safe space to the families as you do their child. Work together and always collaborate when it comes to plans, ideas, goals, etc. Even though this is a team effort, the family is always the primary provider/ teacher and you should always meet them halfway if not meet them where they are at!

    Begin by building a trusting relationship through kind interaction, seeking input, and getting to know family.

    When brainstorming needs/solutions to problems, share kindly but clearly, seek family input, and indicate stance to work partner with and support family, rather than correct or chide.

    Share positive aspects and child development, not just problems to be solved.

    First thing to building a relationship with the families is to be welcoming. From there, when you discuss things with them, start with a positive note, then further discuss the problem and brainstorm ideas together and agree on a plan together. Then, you can end with a positive note and the families can leave feeling confident that their child/children are in good hands.
