Section I “Summary of the study” The study I chose dealt with the critical listening skills that administrators must have when working with parents of early childhood. This research was done at the Hong Kong Institute of Education through the school of early childhood education. Experiences in the Hong Kong Institute of Education suggest that teachers and principals find that communicating with the parents are very helpful because of the open, honest, and working relationships they have with each other. Principals must be able to listen to the concerns of the parents in order to have a good relationship. Principals must be ready to be advocates for the students as well as the parents. They are important because the principals are the people that parents go to just in case they have a problem or need to ask a question. When the parents leave their children at school, the teachers and the principals become responsible for the safety of the children. If anything happen while in school, the principal must be aware of some of the things he/she might say. Effective communication given by the principals is by giving and receiving information, getting a better understanding of the child, and understanding the parent’s expectations. This research was done to let the readers know that it’s very important for the principal as well as the teachers to have effective communication with the parents. It was also done to let other principals and teachers know that listening is very important while dealing with other people’s children and to keep a door open for questions or concerns that the parents may have. It is also important for principals to read in between the lines for parents who really don’t know how to put words together that they are trying to say. Principals want to run their school smoothly so people can benefit from it so they have to know how to communicate and listen well. The methods that were used for effective communication was parent-teacher conferences, daily pick-up and drop off times, and school board meetings. It was stated that listening is getting an understanding of what you hear
