Tweet Parents should try to not be distracted during a parent-teacher conference. You want to concentrate on what the teacher is saying so that the two of you can work together for the benefit of your child.
My suggestions are:
1. Turn off your cell phone.
2. Leave other children at home, if possible.
3. Bring paper and pen to take notes. It will help you focus.
4. Ask questions.
5. Keep the conversation centered on your child.
