I discovered an article about parent bullying in The Dallas Morning News entitled The Rude, Demanding Parents Who Bully Schools by Robert Evans and Michael G. Thompson.
While I hope you haven’t encountered or experienced rude or bullying parents, there’s a chance they may cross your path at some point.
The linked article offers examples for identifying the 3 types/patterns of negative parental behavior and offers several scenarios for managing the behavior.
It is a must read, so please check it out. The next time an extreme parent problem arises, I guarantee you will feel more prepared.
