The reason why you discipline a child is for the child to be conscious of his/her dignity of human person. This isn’t an easy task as already noted. Both the parents and the teachers in schools have roles to play towards ensuring a child is molded into a good adult.
SUCCESSFUL TRAINING OF A CHILD-THE ROLE OF COMMUNICATION BETWEEN PARENTS AND TEACHERS
In order for each party to play its role in the development and discipline of a child, there must be effective communication between the parents and the school management. The reason for this being that during these critical years in the child’s life, he/she spend as much time with the teachers (if not more) as with the parents.
There might be some questionable characters that the child exhibits in school that might not be open to the parents. Additionally, the parents also might notice some changes in attitude behavior in the child at home which the teachers may not be aware of. This is the major reason why there should be constant communication between the parents and the teachers to address these changes and discipline the child accordingly.
WHAT MODE OF COMMUNICATION BRIDGES THIS GAP?
To address this, the Parents-Teachers Association forum has been put in place in many schools. This goes a long way in providing a platform of dialogue between parents and teachers. We’ve also seen how you can better organize these forum meetings to get the best out of it. Click here to learn.
PTA forums though might not really provide a perfect platform for one on one interaction with parents of each child. Another means of communication might be needed. Bulk SMS can be used for this. With a registered bulk SMS account for each class teacher, updates about the general behavior of each pupil can be sent to each parents, and personal discussions can be arranged if need be.
