I have a grrrrreat student who has a great, loving mom. The mother walks the student to class every morning. The child was in 2nd grade this past year and will be in my 3rd grade class this fall. It wouldn't be a problem if the mother walked the child to class and then left. The mom stays out in the hallway and waits for the child to come out. (As she waits she listens to everything that is going on in my classroom and the other classrooms.) Then she walks the child to put her bag away in her locker. And the child is late EVERY SINGLE DAY. I can't do anything about the tardy problem because the school doesn't enforce it. Of course, the child wouldn't be late if mom dropped her off at the front door to the school! So, how do I go about getting the mom to stop walking her child to the classroom for 3rd grade? In a nice, tactful way. Or do I just leave it alone?
