ABSTRACT
Conferences between teachers and parents have sometimes been seen as monsters hovering on school calendars to prevent teachers from enjoying their week. Apparently some deficit in teacher training is in part responsible for these imagined ogres. Specific guidelines for speaking, learned and practiced, will change the monster into a useful tool to create teamwork between teachers and parents. Teacher skills and knowledges should include a friendly greeting, eye contact, avoidance of phrases by the teacher, creative of a "we-ness" feeling, a positive attitude, discussion of problem areas based on work examples, and planned follow-up. Teacher talk to parents provides ways to evidence the conversation between teachers and parents.
