How do you suggest future teachers like myself, to handle aggressive parents or how do you suggest future teachers to handle parent conferences in general?

First, never take things personally and remind yourself parents always want support for their children at the end of the day. If you get a parent that is aggressive, you can get your administrator involved or check in with them to make them aware of your situation. They will most likely know about the parent. Make it sound like you are listening and sharing their concerns, and will followup by phone or email, etc. If they are being apparently rude to you, get a mediator/admin principal involved.

Great advice already..

I've been teaching over 10 yrs. and admin. always tells us to call them asap.

If you know ahead of time that a certain parent tends to be difficult then never schedule a conference alone. The best person to lead the conference is the school counselor.

There are several de-escalation techniques videos on YouTube that are pretty good.

Hi Kay15 I would suggest handling the parents in a calm manner. Parents are easily receptive to negative comments about their child and they will get on you for that. When talking about a student use caution when talking about how they are doing in the class, their behavior and overall performance. Always remember that at the end of the day both parties want the student to succeed in life!!
