    #1 is so KEY! As a former teacher, I can’t tell you how important this is. For parents who hover, their kids struggled so much to adjust. Even the hysterical students would calm down if mom and dad remained calm.

      So true! Kids can totally take on their parents emotions, so best to let them go without making a fuss! Snap a quick pic and then let the teacher take over 🙂
