The Parent-Teacher Relationship With Erica Ladd Of Candid Classroom: The Home Hour Episode 49

Do you ever wonder what your kids’ teachers really wish you knew?

This time of year, it can be easy to start feeling like a slacker in the “school mom” department. Re-entry after winter break is difficult, and sometimes things like reading logs and nutritious lunches start to slip for the best of us. (Note: I am not counting myself among the best of us.)

Erica Ladd

If you can relate, you’re going to love my discussion with Erica Ladd, creator of The Candid Teacher blog, author of Candid Classroom: What Parents Want To Know And Teachers Want To Tell Them*, and co-host of The Girl Next Door podcast. Erica’s point of view about what REALLY helps kids do their best in school is refreshingly reassuring and so, so simple.

We also talk about Erica’s ongoing journey in the foster-to-adopt system, how to look past test scores and other numbers when assessing how good a school is, and more! I know you’re going to love our conversation, so click the play button to listen now! (And then scroll down to find links to the resources we talked about during the show today.)

Erica mentioned two of her favorite adoption-related resources:

The Adoption Decision: 15 Things You Want To Know Before Adopting, by Laura Christianson


In On It: What Adoptive Parents Would Like You To Know About Adoption. A Guide for Relatives and Friends, by Elisabeth O’Toole

You can also find Erica at her personal blog, LaddVenture, and on Twitter and Facebook.
