I have been struggling with classroom management this year in one class. I started the term put well with assigning consequences when deserved but had parents tell me their kid would never misbehave and that I lied about thier kids misbehavior. I even had one parent tell me I was harrasing them by calling them to let them know when their kid cheated on a test. The pushback from parents led to me assigning less consequences and the kids bad behavior escalating. I plan to up my class management starting tomorrow, but how do you deal with patents who automatically accuse teachers of lieing if their child earns a consequence, or accuse you of harrasment when you call to let them know about a childs misbehavior and consequence which is required by law? .
