"We as parents need to know what is being taught, what is not being taught and how much of it is being taught in the classrooms in all subjects. We need to ask the teachers for regular and consistent academic communications know that we have a…"
Hello and thank you for introducing me to the forums. I have spoken several more times on the subject of Fathers and their Importance to a Maturing Child's Success. I want to thank you for the nudge to get out there and make a difference. I'm working on compiling my experience on the varying slices that comprise fatherhood to reach as many as I can. Moving forward this year, i will visite often with updates and possible articles addressing these issues and to the role they play in effective fathering.
With Stephanie Pressley, 2011 Comcast Parent Involvement nominee, I am co-hosting the Power of Parents program sponsored by National MADD and National PTA with funding by Nationwide Insurance, at Gwynn Park HS on Tuesday, April 26 at 6:30pm. I have been a member of MADD since 1990 and currently serve on the Maryland MADD's Operations Council. I was trained as a facilitator for this initiative at the MADD National Conference last September. I would appreciate posting this Gwynn Park HS event on this site and providing this program (workshop setting) to other parents of high school-aged students.
I'm delighted that such a group exist. As a single parent, I'm very much involved and committed to the growth, development, welfare and well being of my 7yr old son. It brings Joy to my heart that my son is on Honor Roll every quarter :D
Was interested in knowing if you were going to start a group for parents interested in learning how to advocate for their child if they feel the teacher and school administration are not fairly addressing your concerns. Would love to hear parents who have had success and hear from parents who are having challenges.
