    During pick-up, I think it’s important to interact with the parents before sending the child home. Telling them about the good things, like fun stories, (and possible challenging things) that happened in their child’s day allows you to start building a relationship with the parents so that if something does come up, the foundation for communication is already laid out. I believe that objective and empathetic language will also help when addressing an issue and won’t make the parents defensive.
