Have you noticed that when you feel tense, you sometimes forget to breath? You think you are having an anxiety attack when, in reality, you just haven't remembered to breath! This might sound silly, but it is one of the most profound secrets of remaining calm.

I recently put together a landing page here on Edutopia with all of our resources for parents (1) , so my eye was caught by a fantastic blog post this week by Mark Phillips, " Beyond Back-to-School Night: Parents and Teachers as Allies (2) ." Mark gives actionable tips for both parents and teachers about how best to work together -- a topic which I know is of perpetual interest to everyone involved in education. It's all too easy for parents and teachers to be portrayed as being in opposition. Parents can sometimes get involved in ways that aren't productive, and it's unfortunate when beleaguered teachers begin to think of parents as the enemy. But there are wonderful stories out there of educators and families becoming true partners to improve the educational experience for everyone. I've gathered a collection of videos with examples of the many ways schools can build these powerful partnerships.
