It’s Back2School Night at #DadChat with @AngelaMaiers – America’s Teacher!

Category: #DadChat

Can it be? Is Summer is almost over? Is it really back to school time? Yes, parents worldwide are celebrating, while kids are moaning and groaning! We have America’s Teacher to help prepare us for this annual ritual. Back again at #DadChat to lead this discussion is America’s TeacherAngela Maiers, on Thursday August 8 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET.

Do we really have to buy all new school “equipment” and a new wardrobe for our kids? Why have parents become so involved in today’s schooling?  What should we do to empower our kids to take charge of their schooling – especially once they’ve begun Middle and High School? We’ll ask these and many more questions at this week’s #DadChat.

Angela has given us this homework for this week’s #DadChat – to read. There may be a pop quiz!
