Parent meetings before big trips
Be concise. Don’t waste time.
Communicate your vision & your purpose.
Don’t ask for input on how well parents think you’re doing your job.
Remember this is not a planning session.
Create a smaller group of parents & teens to help with planning.
Be open to ideas, but guard your time and stand up for your purpose & vision.
Ask for all ideas to be emailed.
Give parents ways they can help & be involved.
