Do you find parent-teacher conferences to be: a) enlightening, b) mutually beneficial, or c) about as fun as going to the dentist? If you answered c, you're not alone. Plenty of parents get nervous about meeting with teachers, but still, you shouldn't feel like you're being called into the principal's office.

If you haven't met your child's teacher yet, this is a great opportunity to share any information that will help her work with your child. It's also a good time to ask the teacher all those questions you've been saving up. Not sure where to start? We've put together a list of Back-to-School Conference Questions just for you.
