What do I have to do this week in 30 minute?

Have 7 online teacher video chats to discuss Hawklads performances, challenges and his future. That’s a crazy thought…..

      1. Not at all. I wish the system was set up to help you more. You could probably skip half of those meetings and spend that time more appropriately on the areas of need. IF the teachers would listen though. Uggghhh.

  1. Can you say “No”? You could embellish it with “Nope” or make it just once a week, putting your foot down with an authoritative voice “For my mental health and my son’s, I’m going to keep these video chats to once a week”… In any case, it would mean you taking control and calling the shots, maybe?

      1. My son taught me that if you write something along the line of “If I haven’t heard from you by this time next week, then I will assume your cooperation and agreement”. We all can set deadlines you know, it’s not the privilege of the few.
