Are you ready for school to begin? Avoid being hated by your child's teacher and listen to this podcast with Jess. In this week's episode she shares insider tips on how to get your kids ready for the school year and how to have a great relationship with their teacher.
1. Make sure bed times and routines are in place before the school year starts. Start practicing a week before school starts so your kids are use to waking up early and going to bed earlier.
2. Read to your kids in the evenings.
3. Introduce yourself to your child's teacher and follow up a few days later with an email.
4. If you do have a problem with your child's teacher, communicate using "I" and always assume the best.
5. If you need to have a conversation with your child's teacher, make an appointment. The carpool line is not the place to have an in depth discussion about your child's grade.

Today we tackle a current event because it needs to be talked about. United has a history of mishandling situations, but more importantly the follow up for these situations. When a company makes a mistake and forces their customers to pay the price, the issue compounds itself. The initial United situation could have been handled, even poorly, without the public backlash if they had only used a little common sense in how they handled their customers.
At the end of the day, we believe United needs to use some common sense in how they treat customers and handle the backlash of a mistake.
