Most education professionals will agree that managing the parents is far more difficult than managing the students. You’d probably also agree that 5% of the parents cause 95% of the duress.
This niche course was designed by an organisational psychologist specifically for Education Professionals. We also recommend inviting non-teaching staff, so the school has an integrated strategy to deal with difficult parents.
