Should a parent become more involved?

waitingCharles: Maybe I have been too involved as an advocate when the situations have required support; maybe your confidence would be even higher if I had stayed out of it. What do you think?

Tai: I disagree. More parents should get involved. When you have raised questions with teachers about a few things here and there and they responded positively, it showed me that most teachers want to be helpful and it gave me more confidence to take on things myself. Unfortunately, in talking with my friends, I think their parents are as scared about talking with teachers about how to improve things for their kids, as the kids are.
