“Blind spots” and the parent-teacher relationship

Friday, April 5th, 2013
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 all aspects of our children’s lives and 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”.

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