I love Family Conferences.
Today I was meeting with a mom of one of my students and I asked what her hopes were for her son in first grade and in the future. She told me she'd like to see him be a doctor or an engineer or a scientist. We talked a little more and then she thought for a minute and said,
"But what I really want is that whatever he does is what he chooses. That's what I want for him."
I love Family Conferences. ♥
