Students tell their parents, ” My teacher doesn’t like me.” The real concern here is why does the student think this? It is time to do some investigating.
The first question to ask is, “Why do you think that?” listen very carefully to the response. A parent should be able to tell if it is an individual student issue, a class issue, or another student’s issue that their student took as their own.
The best approach is to connect with the teacher and ask the simple question, ” How is my child doing in your class?” Listen carefully to the response. If it is an individual issue, the teacher will let you know. If that is the case, then work with your student to resolve a behavior the student is doing.
If it is a class issue, talk with your student to explain that the class as a whole needs to improve and it does not mean that the teacher does not like the student.
