I am a preschool teacher and work closely with parents. Sometimes they complain and because of new parent anxiety, they overreact. My question is…. can I group them together as “parents of my students’? instead of just one of them? For example, I picked one particularly difficult parent to work on for the week but then a few days later another one popped up. She had a different compliant but it brought out the same negative thoughts and feelings that don’t serve me and certainly does not serve them. If I can manage my thoughts around this part of my job then I can handle ANYTHING the world has to give me.
