Do you try to get in & get out quickly as possible or do you stick around at the school after you've visited their classroom?

This evening was my youngest daughter's Open House at school, which I always have to drag myself to because I don't like dealing w/people and even less so now that I've moved to this neighborhood that I don't quite fit in to.

It's a quick walk around the class, check out her desk, artwork, ask the teacher how she's doing and I *try* to leave immediately after but they always have other plans. So I have to deal with the parents, who are more times than not, rude! BUT I made it out alive to tell the tale ;-)

    The kids are so excited to show you what they have been working on and where they go for different classes. It's fun, ours is actually tonight!

    Of course ..
    I ALWAYS made it a point ..
    when I was not TDY/Deployed ..
    to attend the open house at MY Childrens' Schools ..
    talk with their instructors ..
    get an idea of the assignments that the students will do ..
    understand the textbook and what the qualifications of the teacher are ..
    (IT is astounding how many classes do NOT have teachers within their specialty) ..

    and I made sure if there was a 'problem'
    I would go and have the problem taken care of right off the bat ..
    ask for another instructor .. move the schedule around ..
    and let the instructor know ..
    IF my child is rude, disrespectful, or doesn't do their assignment ..
    Here's MY Phone number and E-Address ..
    DO Contact me
    (Because, I expected my children to actually LEARN in class)

    Yes we always attended our children's open houses. We talked with the teachers, saw their desks and any papers they had on display. They usually had a meeting where the principal spoke about what was going on at the school. My kids always did well in school so there were really no issues or problems to discuss. We stayed long enough to see everything and cover all the bases with the teachers.

    I did attend my childrens Open House, because they were always so excited about it, and even more excited when they saw me there.

    Yeah all of mine were (are) the same, always excited about it. She got to jump around in one of those inflatable things (mind is blank)...and have popcorn. She also is very happy that I go.

    When they are little, it takes so little to make them happy.

    So true. I find myself grasping onto every moment with my youngest before she too turns into a teenager. :-)

    They grow up so fast, I have a 11 month old great grandson, it seems like yesterday that he was born, now he's so cute, has a personality of his own, trying to walk and talk, and he's funny, soon he'll be a teenager, that's why you've got to love them and be with them as much as possible.

    I went to all of my daughters' open-house events when they were in school. I don't think I missed a single one.

    I hate open houses...and that's probably because I hated school as a kid. Too many dam@ bullies!

    I didn't hate school until jr. high & up. Far more bullies today than when we were younger, it seems. Thanks.

    I'm no stranger to her school nor what's going on in her classroom and otherwise I don't feel it's necessary to stroll around for no good reason. Thank you.

    That's what it's really all about afterall - making sure you have a good relationship with the teacher and are part of the extended education family. If you've found another way to do that - that's terrific!
