In today's school system, the demands on parents and teachers are taxing and sometimes unforgiving. While there are more care takers involved in the village that helps rear a child, parents and teachers have the majority of the load, creating a very important partnership. Though they have similar goals, they often struggle to communicate and get on the same page. What can we do to support each other in feeling seen for the work each care taker has to bring out the best in our children and adolescents? To help us explore this topic, I have Dr. Caroline Baizan.
