    How should we interact with our children’s teachers? How much is too much? How little is too little? Also, should we include the fact that we are mothers in our job application cover letters? Find out this week on Working Mother Radio.

    Segment 1: Parent/Teacher Relationship
    The relationship you form with your children’s teachers can be one of the most important relationships you form. Learning Expert, Susan Magsamen, expresses the importance of getting to know who your child is modeling and mirroring from day to day.

    Segment 2: Modeling and Mirroring
    Children are always going to do as they see done, so its very important for the adults in their lives to model good behavior, manners, and problem solving. Susan Magsamen urges us to have open lines of communication with the teachers in our children’s lives to ensure that they are modeling good values, and what to do if they aren’t.

    Set the tone, keep the teacher informed, and keep a journal. These are just a few of Susan Magsamen’s ‘Seven Ways to Create a Great Parent Teacher Relationship. Find out why you should follow her seven tips.

    Segment 4: A Mother’s Cover Letter

    Segment 5: Maternal Employment Gap
    Your cover letter is the introductory piece designed to make a hiring manager want to learn more about you. Kathy Caprino hits us with some hard truths, and says while it might not seem fair, business are out for the bottom line, and having a gap in your work experience is always a bad thing.

    Segment 6: The Importance of Context
    We continue our conversation about the kind of information you should be sharing in your cover letter. Ellia Communications President, Kathy Caprino, offers up more sage advice: Be cognizant of the context, and play up your assets.
