How do you prepare for parent-teacher conferences?

I make a list of items to discuss ahead of time. Then after the conference, I keep in touch. This also depends on how far into the year the conferences are.

First understand that teachers / schools make big deals over EVERYTHING. Second, no one knows your child better than you. Third, keep a frequent line of communication open with the teacher and conferences are just a recap... no surprises.

I always went to the parent meetings with respect for the authority of school and for the class teacher, but I did not always agree with the attitudes presented or with the decisions taken. In those cases, I would state my opinion and lay out my arguments, and, most often, it would end at that. Before or after the parents meeting I would find out that most parents agree with my opinion, but keep silent out of fear that their children may suffer the consequences because the parents disagree with the school representatives.

I asked the teacher about 1month prior to the meeting how my daughter was doing in class. Turns out we had some things to work on. When we had the conference the teacher told me those issues were resolved and we were both pleased with her progress.

I'm confident that my children are doing while so I go with the flow and ask questions as they come. If I have major concerns, I will write a list of topics to discuss.
