I From Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Extension Agent A child's success in school depends on how well parents and teachers co- operate with one another, said Chuck Smith, a child development specialist at Kansas State University. That sometimes means parents and teachers must learn to resolve disagree- ments, which may range from how the child is being educated to how a prob- lem at school was settled. "For the child's benefit, parents should try to engage the teacher in cooperation, even in difficult circum- stances," said Smith, who is with K- State Research and Extension. "Some people are too quick to jettison that relationship and go directly to the prin- cipal, which is a confrontational way of dealing with problems. That's not going to help the child." Instead, Smith suggests, parents and teachers should recognize there is a problem that can be fixed. "'Irs not only helping the child in school and their child's relationship with that teacher, but for the child it also models a way of dealing with problems," he 10 Years Ago Jewell County Commissioners must come up with a plan to fix or close down 50 bridges by January.

A fire Saturday morning did exten- sive damage to the two story farm home of Quentin and Jamie Underwood two miles south and a mile west of Burr Oak. % ,The latest in Men'S and Ladies Colognes lime and Lotus , /atcheS said. "It' s a lot better lbr parents to frame difficult issues as solvable prob- lems that are temporary, not perma- nent." When a conflict arises, whether it be directly between the parent and teacher or regarding a school issue, Smith said parents should initiate con- tact with teachers immediately. Then, they should also let the child know that they're going to talk with the teacher, because "the child needs to know that if he or she comes home with a prob- lem, mom or dad is going to contact the teacher," Smith said. A positive parent-teacher relation- ship may also help children to be better equipped to deal with such issues as playground bullying or forms of peer pressure. Rather than initiating further confrontation, the child may choose a more positive reaction, such as walk- ing away or saying "No." "We have to help our kids find ways of dealing with issues going on at school that parents will have no con- trol over," Smith said "As a parent it's very important to envision your rela- tionship with the teacher as a partner- Angel tags remain on the Farmway Credit.
