Adele Discusses Tyler
Adele is looking over her lesson book. She has asked one of the parents to come a little early to discuss some issues with her child.
She looks up when she hears the door open.
"Hello Adele." (Vanessa)
"Hello, Vanessa. Come on in. I've been waiting for you." (Adele)
"Thanks so much for coming in a little early." (Adele)
"Help yourself to some refreshments." (Adele)
"No thanks. I'm not hungry." (Vanessa)
Vanessa takes a seat.
"The reason I called you in, is because I'm concerned about our Tyler. He started the school year off really well, but the past couple of weeks he seems to be slacking off quite a bit. Is there something going on that I should be aware of? (Adele)
"Not that I know of. He hasn't told me of any problems. When you say he's slacking off, what does that mean exactly?" (Vanessa)
"Well, let's take a look. In the past two weeks, he has missed turning in two homework assignments, and he got a D on the last quiz. Normally, he gets As or Bs on his quizzes." (Adele)
"Hmmmm. I don't know what's going on. Every time I ask him if his homework is done, he says yes." (Vanessa)
"Well I just want to nip it in the bud now. It's so easy to lose our young boys, and I don't want that to happen to Tyler. If I know there's nothing external, then I can deal with any issues regarding his school work." (Adele)
"Well I thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will have a serious talk with him when I get home." (Vanessa)
Adele finishes up just in time as the door opens and a few of the other parents start filing in.
