Host: Who should write my childs recommendation letters?

Andrew Battaile: Letters of recommendation and especially once that are required are almost always from your child's teachers or their principal. You can also ask someone who knows your child well to write them a letter of recommendation. Perhaps a pastor, a family friend or coach or counselor. It is a good idea because it is seen as a character reference. Someone who knows your child sees how they act with adults. It is good idea dont do too many of these and make sure that you ask the school before hand whether or not they would like to take these or not.
