Coping with Toxic Parents

If Your Problem, As A Teacher, Involves Not Knowing How To Cope With Difficult/Toxic Parents And Fellow Staff Members And You Want To Solve It NOW Then  Read On…

A True Story

I recall teaching with a young woman who was going through hell and was forced to take an extended stress leave because of one toxic parent and one unethical fellow staff member.

What was the problem?

Her teaching style was low key.  She was a bit shy and lacked confidence when talking to parents and peers.

Because of this she was perceived as dull, uninteresting, weak and incompetent even though her students seemed to like her. (What we do in the name of concern for students.)

After 6 months on stress leave she returned to teach at another school under a stronger, more understanding and supportive principal. She never had a problem like that again and is now approaching 20 years in the profession.

The sad fact is that I have seen this type of story played out far too often with  more tragic results.

It is one of the reasons I have committed myself to becoming an advocate for teachers to help promote fair treatment, self confidence, assertiveness, joy and a healthy productive relationship between teacher and parent.

The Awesome Power of Positive Thought

By | Anxiety, Food for Thought, Inspiration, Motivation, Self Confidence, Self Improvement, staff morale, Stress Management | No Comments

We all know that positive thoughts and visualization are really effective when it comes to re-educating our subconscious mind and changing our behavior.

My interest in the life changing power of positive thought and visualization started in my mid-twenties (quite a few years ago) when I picked up a copy of Norman Vincent Peale’s best seller “The Power of Positive Thinking”. That book was a great inspiration which eventually lead to the creation of 121 Thoughts of Hope, Joy and Inspiration based on years of successful, and practical application of it’s principles.
