Understanding your child’s education is tough enough. Trying to get answers when you don’t know the right questions is immensely difficult.
And when you’re facing down a teacher or school that is not really willing to open up to you…well, then it’s time for professional support.
Talking to teachers and schools is an art form
We all talk to each other all day long. Between texts and emails, phone calls and in-person meetings, we are constantly communicating.
It might seem simple to get answers from the school or teachers, but it sometimes gets downright complicated.
Your emotions get in the way.
Your to-the-point email comes across as inconsiderate or very blunt.
That surprise phone call caught you off guard and you said something you wish you could take back.
It happens to everyone.
With Parent-Teacher Communication Coaching, you can learn strategies and techniques to prevent those little mistakes and make your requests so much more effective.

Meg was great about answering my questions and put my mind to ease! Thank you!
I can list so many great things about working with Meg to get my son a 504 at school. She made the process quick and easy. She’s not scared to hold the school accountable and call them out when it’s needed. Most importantly she treats our kids like she would her own. Her passion is beyond apparent for the kids she works so hard for.
Your expertise and advice has made all the difference – it gave me the format to push back with and the confidence to keep pestering them when they insisted I just wanted my kid to be “special.”
MilKids Consulting has a clear understanding of the needs of the vulnerable children in this population. Level headed, clear objectives and easily understood are hallmarks of work provided. From the mother of multiple children with special needs. Open to promoting valued resources for all children.
I can’t say enough about Meg!! We moved in late Jan and our daughter was having some issues in school. A fellow friend told me about Meg and I immediately contacted her. She has helped us SO much. My daughter is on grade level for reading and has improved greatly in math. All around just her enjoyment of school has improved. Meg helped me with my communication between her teachers and myself to make sure (my child) was receiving the support she needed!
When looking for an advocate it was very important to me that I found someone to fight for my child as I was, had great communication skills and the ability to get results quickly. I got this and so much more with Meg. She not only got the results quickly, but also taught me as a parent how to communicate better with the school. Which has made things in other areas so much easier. She’s wonderful at this and it’s obvious this is more than a job to her, it’s her passion.

Investing in Your Family’s Success
Working to create a positive parent-teacher relationship is one of the most vital roles a parent plays at school. Being able to successfully work with your child’s teacher ensures that you have all the information you need to guide your child on the next step of the journey.
When you are conflicting with the teacher, or just not talking at all, you’re missing out on chances to support your child’s future success.
Learning the specific strategies your family needs to talk to the teacher effectively and professionally can make all the difference in how you handle school.
