    As an early childhood teacher, I realize that families are extremely important for several reasons:

    1) They are the first influence on a child’s understanding of the world around them.

    2) They are going to be the people with the best understanding of why the child maybe starting to act differently.

    3) They can also be a good resource for ideas to try in the classroom (i.e. tricks for getting an infant to take naps).

    4) They can also teach about their culture to the rest of the class.
