For those of you who have read the book how to speak so kid will listen and how to listen so kids will speak - I am a big fan of this philosophy. The idea is that with time and communication with a child a teacher or a parent can change a child into anything. Seeing as school days are very short and there are many kids that if spoken to nicely about certain behaviors or problems could help make a major change. Do you think it would be strange if a teacher calls a students house to speak to the student themselves. Obviously the parent could listen it. THOUGHTS ANYBODY???
