Hi all, I have about five or six 'pushy' parents in my class who constantly bombard me with questions, advice and generally anything they can think of. At first, I was willing to accommodate them, however, it has become very frustrating as they ask questions at the most inappropriate times i.e. first thing in the morning while I am setting up and a lot of my time seems to be spent 'spoon feeding' these parents. I am a Year 2 teacher and I understand that their children are young, but this is one of the reasons I want to teach in the higher primary school. So, my question is: how can I deal with these types of distractions? What strategies can I use? Have any of you encountered the same problem? If so, how did you deal with it? Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated. James.
