Example: With parents working longer hours and extra jobs, it can be difficult for them to remain completely involved with the education of their children. In return, student work and participation decreases. At the time of report card conferences, the parent is completely surprised that their son or daughter has received failing grades. The parent at this point, would like an explanation, and proof of contact from the teacher. It is well known that many of our children will do whatever it takes to not disappoint their parents. Throughout the semester, the child could have been forging signatures, changing grades, intercepting phone calls, and throwing away mail. In this case, is seems the parent was not informed, and had no prior knowledge that their child was not doing well in school.
