spinbug Posted February 2, 2005 Report Share Posted February 2, 2005 Okay, I admit that as a parent I just have some of those grouchy days when I feel impatient with every mistake my children make. So, I'm trying very hard to be understanding of when my teacher is grouchy and impatient with me! I'm the only adult in our studio and find it very difficult to handle it when she yells at us. I feel a little caught in the middle because I'm not used to being talked to in this way. Normally I wouldn't stand it but I don't want to be a bad example to the other kids. The corrections she makes are ones that I need, I do have a hard time remembering combinations and I do need to work on that. I don't have a problem with the fact that she is correcting me. It's more the "manner" in which she does it. Sometimes she admits that she's grouchy but that hardly seems like a license to be rude. And, it usually happens at this time of the year which is very busy for her because of the upcoming recital. Anybody out there have a similar experience and how did you handle a situation like this? By the way, this is not the first time it has happened. But I don't think just letting it go is working for me anymore. Quote Link to comment
