Yesterday we had the case of a mother who has been fined 1,600 euros per explain, WhatsApp class group, that a teacher was (supposedly) doing to your child. Following this news have decided to write the rules of good use WhatsApp for school groups and the school (as children that you can get together with more than five groups quietly).
1. don’t talk about teachers
Everything you have to talk about them it is better to be face-to-face, explain either with other parents, either with the teacher or Professor involved with the direction. The text does not always says what you want to express, and receiver does not always understand the message as the sender sends it, so often conflicts and misunderstandings are generated.
Therefore, minimally sensitive topics is better to speak them in person, to be able to clarify so on-site any word or phrase that generates confusion.
2 it gives only relevant information related
And avoid that which is not. Unless all members agree, it prevents the dissemination of jokes, videos or images that have no relationship with the group. Similarly, do not give out information that does not have to do with the group. “I have a friend who makes chulisima t-shirts and sell them very cheap” or similar. The Group has to be practical and concise.
3. do not answer if you’re not going to bring anything
Often someone asks about a lost object “to see if anyone has seen a scarf with coat of arms of Hogwarts”. Although it may seem impolite, it is better to not say anything if you don’t know it. If not, all members of the group can begin with a “I don’t”, “I nor”, which makes whenever you pick up the phone have more than 100 messages calmly, and parents with little time to end up not reading group ignoring information that may be relevant.
4. don’t laugh from other parents
Do not talk of other parents of the school. It is impolite, disrespectful and it is risky if we take into account that many are known without that their children go to the same class.
5. don’t think sub-groups to discuss someone’s group
Again, not only it is disrespectful, but that it is also dangerous. The probability that someone insert the leg and say in the large group what he meant in the subgroup is high. If the intention is that there is a good relationship between mothers and fathers, there is nothing worse than walking by alternative groups that go spreading rumors and accusations.
6. don’t be the agenda every day of your son
Of course, that at any given time you can ask about some task or similar, can go through all the children that they forget something, or that they have not understood well how to do homework. But do not make it a routine: it is annoying for the rest of the parents and does not help your son in nothing.
If each day has problems with homework, it is logical to talk to the teacher to help you in this regard. If it happens more or less often, the ideal is perhaps the child offer different solutions to make him who is responsible for this: make sure before leaving the school that you have everything well targeted, asks the landline to any child class to call should you have doubts, etc.
7. do not add anyone without consulting him first
Once you are inside, even people who would prefer to not be just staying to avoid leaving traces of their March. To avoid bad rolls, it is better to ask before.
8 use an emoticon to show the intent of a message
In the absence of non-verbal communication, it is worth add an emoticon to show to the rest of the intentionality of the words. It is not the same to say ‘my child has come wet tour”with a face of laughter, with a face of anger.
Now, not abuses of the emoticons… If there are many end up fouling the text and the message.
9. do not share other photos
Any photo that could compromise the privacy of other people must share in these groups.
10 positivism and desire to help
The aim of the groups must be, above all, the help and be positive, because it is nothing more than a way to fly over our children through contact with other parents, if at any time they need our help. If someone wants to be funny at the expense of others, be ironic and go complaining, not only not you add, without that you are subtracting. In such a case it is best to not form part of the group.
It’s worth thinking twice about what is going to say, do not write hot (if the mother or father are very altered) and, as I say, always try to add.
