Are educators better parents? I know I’ve gone to my daughter’s teachers and been overinvolved because I think I have inside knowledge of the inner workings of schools. I’ve caught myself being the helicopter parent and backed off because I know how annoying those kinds of parents can be. I do feel that teaching helped prepare me for parenting…after all, you can’t hit them at school so you have to learn alternative behavior management techniques. Hello PBIS…LOL!
