Teaching in college has allowed various types of experience and while there were bad times, most of the days are filled with awe, friendship and wisdom.
But, whenever I have student - parents in my class, they make me uncomfortable but eventually, a more open - minded academic relationship exists. Sometimes, we get to discuss personal lives including families and children, occasions and stuffs like personalized gifts for boys to boost.
Somehow, I am proud that in spite of their core families and work, they manage to be in school and earn a degree. Thus, when you have student - parents of younger or older age than yours, welcome them more, so, they wont feel left out.
