Guest justthedriver Posted October 7, 2004 Report Share Posted October 7, 2004 I'm grateful to have Parents of Boys to ask this to; I'm not sure what to do. My son has a new teacher this year, new to the studio and new to teaching. He says she's a yeller, doesn't give corrections OR support, and is sarcastic. She does seem a little edgy, even with parents, that sort of smiling thru gritted teeth thing. I know he gets grief about dancing at his regular school, which he pretends to shrug off but which I know hurts. Maybe he's just using this as an excuse to retreat; I gather that's not unusual at this age (12) He loved his old teachers, both here and at his SI. I don't want to make it worse by stepping in when I shouldn't. Should I just encourage him to suck it up, use it as a character building experience? Or is there a time and a way to choose to intervene? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
