Understanding different personality types are necessary for a successful connection between teachers and parents. 

Teachers will be better able to convey their students’ strengths and weaknesses whether they are aware of these basic personality types. In this article, we are talking about four unique, generic personalities that teachers often see.

The Soft Hearted Parent:

The soft-hearted Parent is the one who does not insist on assignments and homework. If their child refuses to finish schoolwork or turn in overdue projects, they may give in to their objections. These parents may write a note to their children excusing them from school on various days for random, overly frequent reasons. It’s tough to form a relationship with these parents because they often fail to enforce the disciplinary rules that are in the classroom at home.


Communication is vital for any relationship, and when it comes to parents and teachers. Set-up a weekly meeting is proficient at keeping an eye on the performance of the students. Directing and interacting with the teachers helps you promote your kid’s work performance and get to know how your students are performing. 

The Heavily Involved Parent:

The overly engaged Parent is often concerned about their child’s academic performance. They may appear more worried with grades than with how much knowledge their child is learning and memorizing. Respect is the essential thing to remember when speaking with this Parent. Recognize that parents have great expectations for their children. They want their child to grow up to be a successful adult who can hold a high social position and excel in their jobs.


When you talk to these parents, make sure to understand them very well about their kids’ performance, ask them not to pressure kids much, and let them excel the knowledge by themselves. This will take time, but you have to patiently wait or really convince them not to be over-burden on their students. 

The Executive Parent

The “boss” parent is also known as the executive Parent. This type of Parent inspires in their child a definite list of dos and don’ts. This personality type pays attention to the teacher’s comments and ensures that the student is on track. Teachers might identify with this parenting style the most because maintaining authority over students is a key component of effective classroom management.


While dealing with the boss parents, also represent the better side of your kids. Let them know how better your student is excelling in the particular subject and in other activities. This personality type of parents take the feedback very seriously, so you must be aware, what to put in front of them.

The “After schooling” Parent

The term “after schooling” is gaining popularity. This phrase is commonly used to describe when a student attends after-school classes. Piano classes, coaching groups, and dancing and sports activities are among the examples. The afterschool parents are tough and skillful. They want their child to achieve fast in multiple intelligences, and they support and encourage exceptional performance both inside and beyond the classroom.


These parents’ personalities talk about time management skills, the importance of the students. 

The key to the parents-teacher relationship is COMMUNICATION:

As far as we have seen, communication is the root of every relationship. Whether it is husband-wife, siblings, or parent-child relationship, communication daily and clearly is vital. 

With communication, the second thing that matters in the parent-teacher and parent-child relationship is RESPECT; where there is respect, there is love and humbleness.
