I am PTA President and my principal has asked for our help in trying to direct a parent that is TOO involved in the classroom. They have taken our charge to come help out at school a little too much to heart, and spend the whole day there in the classroom with their child. We are in search of positive ways to redirect this parents' energy. I have thought of giving the parent a 'program' to run that gets her out of the classroom but still involved in school. Nothing can convince her that she is actually hurting, not helping, her child by being this ever-present. We are in search of literature, in particular, that suggests that too much involvement is not good.
