Question 1 of 25

Discuss a time in which you had to confront a parent about their child's behavior or learning.

Confrontation is challenging. Parents can get defensive about their children or be in denial about their children's struggles. In the end, both you and the parent want what's best for the child. Think about a time when you were able to speak honestly but empathetically to a parent about their child.
