Series Feedback:

  • "Provides tools to work on how to communicate with parents, and create that equal relationship to collaborate w/ them." - Emma T., Preschool Teacher
  • "This was also an eye opener just like Part 1 for me. Again, we tend to speak before really thinking about the actual point we are trying to get across. In return it can sound negative and could feel like an attack from the family. I do not want that so this was very informational for me and it gave me a good understanding of what I need to do now." - Jamie P., Early Childhood Teacher
  • "Great use of my time and a launching pad for constructive and difficult conversations." - Carly C., Preschool Teacher
  • "This webinar was well worth my time.  I would recommend it to everyone who works with children." - Laura G., Preschool Teacher
