I needed this
To get myself to sit through this. (Details here.)
Spring afternoon parent teacher conferences are nice and light so parents and teachers have a chance to really talk. They are so much better than the rush, rush atmosphere of the night before.
This year, I have the younger brother of a former student. Both boys are great kids, but very different. It is hard to believe they have the same genetic makeup and live in the same house, but they do. The older one is quiet and reserved and does all that is asked of him and more. The younger one is outgoing but quite lazy. Mom said the older one is much easier to deal with in school but the younger one is easier at home. She said he never even cried as a baby. I told her the reason for that was simple. Crying required effort and he was just not going to exert himself. It was much easier to sleep. Luckily, for me, she has a good sense of humor and just started laughing. Anyone know where I can buy a good verbal filter?
