I’ve noticed over the past few years though, parents are no longer staying for the entire school concert.
We stayed for the entire event. But as the evening wore on, I could have had my choice of seats in the front rows because others were leaving.
It’s hard to juggle busy schedules — some kids with games, others haven’t eaten dinner yet, or done their homework — but it’s kind of sad to watch as a group completes their performance and a whole cluster of seats empty as parents and siblings make a beeline for the door.
The school used to require the kids performing to stay and watch the others but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
What do you think? Stay or go?
