This is so true.

One of my dearest friends was explaining how my classroom worked to some parents, as I had a reputation as being strict/ hard and they weren't sure their children would succeed in my class. I did have the great luck of getting the 'hard' children so being consistent, having high expectations, etc was important to keeping the classroom running.

Anyway, she would just look at the parents and tell them, she'll just love them into submission. They will love her so much, they won't want to do anything to disappoint her. So many of my kids needed those hugs, those smiles and encouragements because they'd never get them at home. They always knew where they stood in my room.

Love is the key!

The "tough" teachers are always the best ones. And old softies underneath!!
