Call on Meeting Both Mother & Father/Guardian.
Ask parents to attend conferences together when possible. Confusions are less common if parents hear what you have to say, and you’ll be able to gauge the kind of support both parents give the child. (Of course, remember that both mother and father may not be available.
Today, when some 60 percent of adult women work outside the home, it may not always be the mother who’s available to meet. And many children come from single-parent homes; you could unwittingly hurt a child’s feelings by always asking to meet the “mother.”)
