Uninvolved parent
I have a parent in my internship class who does not care about the students misbehavior. What can I do to try to get the parent more on the same page with me?

I think the first step should be a parent-teacher conference with maybe a principal or guidance counselor present. It is important to understand a little bit of the home situation because maybe the student is having some difficulties at home that he or she takes that frustration out during the school day.

I think the first step would be a conference with the principal or other administration involved. Do NOT attack the parent or make them feel like they are incapable, but rather suggest that there are some things they can try at home that will benefit the child, and ultimately probably help the parent in the long run as well. Chances are if they are misbehaving in class, they are at home as well. Perhaps the parent does not know what to do when faced with these problems at home, so suggest some tips and ways to redirect and praise the good behavior so that the child wants to listen and behave. Do not underestimate the power of positive reinforcement! If the problem persists beyond that, perhaps it is the undertones of something more serious, and the school's social worker is always on hand to help handle situations just like this. Sometimes it takes a trained professional!

First, a conference will need to be held. Next, be the parent to a certain degree! Have a reward system, give them talks, punish them appropriately.
