Chalk Talk: How to Interpret Report Card Comments
There’s nothing more embarrassing, confusing, or frustrating than reading “disruptive” or “has difficulty working with others” on a report card. Parents want their children to succeed in all they do, and a negative comment on a report card can damage that hope. The first response a parent should have is to view the comment as a method of communication from an important person in your child’s life. Teachers also want the best for your children, and comments can provide an opportunity for them to quickly address an issue (especially if he or she has been unable to see you during conferences). Do not take these comments as a personal attack; remember, without these comments, how can your child grow? Next, look at the comments in context of the report card. Do the grades reflect “disruptive”? It’s quite possible that you may see a downward trend, and your child is either lashing out because of his or her difficulty or talking is causing the problem. You may need to also discuss this matter further with the teacher. Even if you do understand what is happening, it is beneficial to ask your child’s teacher how you can help.
