Below is a list of warning signs that as a stay at home mom you should be watching for. Hopefully, you will never need to change your child’s teacher. One bad teacher can change the way a child feels about school for the rest of their life. Now, most teachers are perfectly fine and even wonderful, but sadly there are those out there that can fall into the “Bad teacher” category.
1. Be wary of teachers who teach children what to think instead of how to think. Children should know that some questions do not have right or wrong answers. If everything is the teachers way or the wrong way then you will want to keep an eye on your child
2. If the teacher makes your child feel like they are bad or wrong for making a mistake, you will want to look into changing the teacher. Kids should never be afraid of getting the answer wrong or making a mistake. They should know that mistakes are normal, and something that they can learn from to do better next time.
3. If the teacher “shames” the child in front of the whole class. Such as pointing out to the whole class that your child did something wrong. Keeping the whole class in for recess because one or two students did something wrong.
Other things to look for are the child’s attitude towards school changing for the worse or their grades falling. Now, those signs could also be cause for other issues such as bullying, so don’t assume until you know the facts.
