I had a parent repeatedly shit talk me all over a school FB group, claiming I “hadn’t been doing anything for all of distance learning.” ... I had about 10 video lessons + daily (con’t in comment)

I have a similar parent I’m dealing with. Just because they’re not clicking on things doesn’t mean I’m not offering them!

like

Maybe an upbeat email to all the parents with a very pointed message reminding them what is being offered in terms of lessons and activites.
Then, a sentence or two (or more!) stating that you noticed some students have not been accessing those activites. You are concerned that, for whatever reason, those students (parents) have not been "taking advantage of all the wonderful digital learning opportunities..."😂 that they should be accessing.
The message will be clear.

+ daily activities (we had only been in DL for 2ish weeks at this point). She just wasn’t clicking on any of them. This was a few weeks ago and I am still fuming (and so so hurt) at the thought of all the other parents who saw and believed the flat out lies she was posting about me... all because of her own incompetence.

Remember that some people are really struggling and take it out on others. Know too that other parents see the quality of this parent. Don’t be so sure that they are believing it.

I’ve had so many rumors spread about me I’m almost done with the whole career 😅

Google classroom and Jupiter timelines always have my back. Proof is a screenshot away.

That said, I don’t generally have to get confrontational. It’s usually, “let’s talk about what’s really the problem here...” and often they just need to vent because they’re not handling life well. I direct them to vent at the problem instead of me and they’re identical apologetic and appreciative that I heard them out.

One parent admitted that she became overwhelmed and turned off announcements and stopped reading email because she was inundated.

For the very few that are just unwilling to work with me, I just make sure I’m on solid footing and out my foot down.

Like me, you have dated a million times and yet can’t seem to get it right. If you have ever wondered, whether in silence or out loud, “what’s wrong with me?”, this book is for you. I’ve heard a million times that communication is the key to a successful relationship. However, nobody taught me what effective communication is. How many conversations have I had in my head that lead to a conclusion without ever involving the other party? Countless! If this resonates, this book is for you.
