Devise a Plan to Create Change

Once you get the facts, ask the teacher what you can do to help, and find out what has already been done. Then make a plan together. What would you two like to see your child doing in a few weeks? A month? Suggest ways the teacher can help in the classroom, and listen to her suggestions for changes you can make at home. You may think you know best, but remember—teachers have ample experience dealing with bullying and other problems.
