1. Address the matter and speak with him calmly
Don’t ignore your child’s concerns, especially if his complaints about his teacher are frequent. Engage him in conversation to find out what happened, but stay calm and avoid seeming over-anxious over the situation.
2. Ask open-ended questions
Allow him to describe his experiences in school, says Sarinah. Pay attention to his gaze, gestures and body language. This can help you ascertain if the claims are valid, and the degree of emotional stress that he is going through. Be careful not to inject ideas or answers.
3. Speak To The Principal
Once you have gathered the facts, make an appointment with the head of the school. Speak with her preferably in person, and share your concerns. Allow time for the head of the school to investigate and conclude her findings.
4. Take Action If Your Child's Teacher Has Crossed The Line
Assuming that Junior’s fears are validated, ask for a plan of action to help him get rid of these feelings and regain confidence about school. Set a time frame. Meanwhile, continue to assure your child.
