melissel Posted February 18, 2012 Share Posted February 18, 2012 (edited) Ultimately, it's not a huge deal, but I think I missed an opportunity here, and I'm kicking myself. DD9 wanted to drop a class midway through our co-op term. It's completely fine for her to do so; we're very flexible with attendance and registration. However, she was nervous and a bit embarassed about it and wanted me to tell her teacher that she wasn't coming back. I explained that it was perfectly fine for her to drop and that her teacher wouldn't be upset with her at all. I also suggested that she and I talk to her teacher together, but that made her even more anxious. In the end, I spotted her teacher in the hallway and just gave her a heads up, and that was the end of it. Now I'm really wishing that I'd had her speak to the teacher with me instead of just handling it for her. Would you have made an anxious kid go with you to talk to the teacher, or would you have just handled it the same way? If you would have have made her go with you to talk to the teacher, how would you have talked her into doing it without causing a meltdown? TIA!
