Situation/Case Study:
PARENT/TEACHER ISSUE

Description:
I have a girl in my class who is not from a sound family background. There are three siblings with several different fathers. The girl comes to school with no boots. The mom does not follow through on things we talk about. The girl comes with no snack and she is not appropriately groomed. The girl is emotionally needy. Mom has a hot temper. The girl seems to be sensitive to noise. Mom seems to yell a lot. Mom's boyfriend recently made them move out. The mom has cancelled three conference attempts without calling. The girl is not progressing well. She gives up easily. I have tried a lot of strategies. I'm at the end of the rope with what to do on this one.
