Based upon the previous tip, it is obvious that bullying is wrong and it will not be tolerated. But,
what do you do when parents are bullies? The real reason why parents argue with teachers and
administration is because they will never win the argument at home with their own child who
they, as the parent, never corrected. They are, in many ways bullied at home and react out of
fear; this fear is taken out on the teacher in the form of anger and rage. They are not doing their
child any favors because their child is going to have a difficult time in life when Mom and Dad
are not around. What's the answer? When dealing with a parent who is a known bully, never
go at it alone. Always meet with them when you have the support of your colleagues or the
administration. Parents who are bullies will usually believe what their son or daughter tells
them. Things like "the teacher doesn't like me," or "the teacher is always picking on me"
are common cries from students who are bullies. When you meet with these parents, they
go on the attack and become accusatory, putting you as the teacher on the defensive.
Chances are, if their son or daughter is a bully, they are a school-wide problem as well, and
other teachers and administration have observed their behavior. Having the support of
your team when meeting with a parent avoids the idea that you are picking on their child.
