I have seen this at placement where they run parent consolation’s twice a term, and if the teacher needs to see the primary career, they arrange meeting.

It is very early on when the child develops a certain personality depending on the type of upbringing and environment provided. Children do develop differently depending on their genetic makeup and environment, parents and guardians can play a huge role to ensure that the child grows up to be an emotionally mature individual.
