Parents of one lovely child at my school are getting a divorce. Both parents are very lovely, but they can't see eye to eye. This is going to be a contentious divorce. What I have experienced is both parents are very loving to the child . One of them, asked me for copies of our attendance records alleging that the spouse is not being truthful, and accusing this person as being a "bad" parent.I really don't want to be in the middle of this.We don't have guidelines about this particular situation in our classRoom handbook, and now I am considering adding a section.
Could someone give me some advice how to go about this? I haven't responded and not sure how to do it in a fair way.
Hello Vera,I think that if both parents hold custody of the child, you should give the record of the child to both caregivers. You may want to explain that it is their responsibility to communicate both, and you don't need to get into your personal feeling.
