Hi all

This evening I am going to attend the first parental school meeting for my daughters class, she is in grade 1.

I believe the meeting is mostly a general orientation.

I fear it could be very boring so I am sure everyone would enjoy it if I have many questions to get a dialog going.

Here is where I need your help.

What would be good questions?
What question would make a teacher squirm?

Good can both mean good and "good".

Which is more effective, the cane or the slipper?

I was thinking along the lines of telling them that our family is an "Open relationship" and that they should not be too surprised if my daughter speaks of special parties in the weekends.

Since my wife is dropping and picking the kids every day it is her that will get all the funny looks :happy

You could ask them who you should send the invoice for your time to, and whether you should send the one for your daughter's time separately?

You should 'break the ice' with a joke. Something along the lines of . . .

So I took my 10 year old daughter to the Doctors the other day to ask for a prescription for contraceptive pills for her. "Good God!" said the Doctor, clearly shocked, "You don't mean to say your daughter is sexually active at 10 years old?" "I wouldn't say 'active'", I said, "she mostly just lies there like her Mother".

That ought to do it.

Good luck.

Tell them you already have the whole "Birds and the Bees" thing covered off, and not to get too alarmed if little TS03 starts waffling on about the "One-eyed vomiting Cobra!"

Should smooth the rails nicely.

My daughter had asked why you had been closely inspecting Mr Jeffreys winky in the stationary cupboard?

Grade 1? What is this? Some kind of yank school?

How would I know what kind of school it is - I just pay the humoungous school fees. Her class is named "1D" , so I deducted she is in grade 1. What the £$%^ do I know about schooling these days. I recently learnt that the are more tags than baby, girl and woman for a female. Evidently there is also toddler, preschooler and others that I have already forgotten.

But my daughter is a bright one - she recently told her mother (my wife ) that I was the most important member of the family as I was the one making the money so they could buy stuff. She is clearly cut out for contracting. :happy

Yeah, kids do tend to learn by example and repeat phrases they constantly hear around the house.

Keep bringing home that bacon kid!

Oh, I see. You're the yank.

In the UK, we tend to talk about "Year 1" or "1st Year". Grades refers to either marks gained in tests, exams, school report (you probably know these as "report cards"), or music examination levels. :ohwell

not really a Yank

but I agree that this thing of multiple names for the same thing is a pain in the behind.

So, she is 6 years old, whatever "year", "grade","level" or title there is associated with that is what they were talking about yesterday.
It is a school with the "international baccalaureate" program. Should prepare her well for later life.
