“Blind Spots” & the parent-teacher relationship

Saturday, April 13, 2013

1256 Galleria Boulevard
Roseville, CA 95678

 11:00a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Blind Spots are the aspects of our children’s and students’ lives that we cannot see.  We are not present 24X7 and we don’t see  how they behave in all circumstances. The popular culture, especially cyber communications via texting and social media, cultivate and inspire ideas and behavior that suggest to children there are “no limits”. All the while we parents & teachers may be operating on beliefs, assumptions and anxieties that engage our blind spots rather than helping our child to become a better learner.

This talk explores how parents and teachers can partner to overcome blind spots.
