I have always found that I am more confident when I am planned and organised.
When I first started teaching, I felt stressed and uptight about PTI's (parent teacher interviews) as I was quite young, got anxious if faced with conflict and not a parent myself. I worked on feeling prepared and planning ahead to help minimise the stress and anxiety I suffered.
Having a template / formula that I could use to plan and run all the interviews in a consistent manner with all parents, gave me confidence to carry out the PTI's professionally. I was also able to demonstrate to parents that I took their contributions very serious, as I noted down a lot of what they said and had a follow up process which enabled me to build a professional trust with my student's parents.
I'd love to share this with you now!

I hope it helps you feel more confident too!
