Home visit
At my school home visits are mandatory at the beginning of the year. I think it has been great to get to know the student in their environment, but sometimes it's not a good one, and it can be hard. I find myself frustrated with the parents, and feeling bad for the students.

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do in the situation, unless there is any reason to call DCF. I would feel frustrated as well if I saw something I didn't like, but what you can do, is just make the classroom a loving environment for all the students, so they will love to come to school everyday.

You are an enormous influence in your students' lives. They may not have an ideal home life, but you can give them praise in the classroom and create a warm and inviting environment when they come into class each day. Tell them good morning every morning that they walk into class and focus on encouraging students each day in your classroom. Some students may come in your classroom hungry, so you can provide healthy snacks (after making sure they do not have any allergies). See what ways you can help the students in the classroom and provide encouragement in your teaching.

I agree you cannot do anything but make the child's experience in your classroom a wonderful and warm one. If the household is that bad and you believe you need to have authorities visit the house then you should contact them. But all you can do is understand which children are in struggling households and make sure they feel safe and welcomed.

Don't be frustrated cause now you'll be able to further understand your students and figure out what you need to do to bring out the best in them.

That is a tough case, however, you must use it to your advantage. Don't feel bad for your students but rather take notice of what you believe they are missing or need. This is the opportunity to understand why each student acts and thinks how they do, which will let you better work individually with each student.

You muist remember there is only so much you can do. What happens at home is often out of your control. You must try to make their life as great as possible while they are in your hands. Let the students know you are there for them.

unfortunately you may to emotionally detach. Do what you can to keep the student engaged. I would personally have a chat with the schools guidance councilor and let them be aware of the challenges the child may face.

Unfortunately many of our students will come from home situations that we may not find ideal. Although this is very saddening, and must be difficult to see their environment first hand, I believe that you as a teacher now have an advantage in working with that student. Understanding student's home life helps us as teachers to better understand each student as an individual and better access their needs. As sad as it is to know that one of your students is not in the best situation, now that you have this information you are able to do all that you can specific to that student to make their life even just a little bit easier while they are in your classroom.
