Owen was talking about his friend in school and he mentioned that he knew the boy's name the first day of school. So that got me thinking of my teaching days and I so I asked Owen,
"Does your teacher say his name a lot?"
This got me thinking even more...
"Does your teacher say YOUR name a lot?"
I was happy with that answer. Do you know why?
Because in general, if a teacher or other kids know the name pretty quickly, you can pretty much count on the fact that the teacher is having to give that student many reminders to stay in check. So, ask your child if their teacher says their name a lot and see what you find out.
