Encourage all kids, not just your own

- +

The holiday season is in full force and I've been enjoying a number of wonderful parties since late last week. One of the more important ones for me was the Open House ceremony at my son's school which takes place at this time each and every year. It is a time when parents have a chance to watch children in class, talk to the teachers, and watch them perform on stage. I have been doing this for six years already. 

This year, my son and his classmates proudly performed a Gangnam style dance. It was the first show of the day so everyone was in full spirit to enjoy the fun. One boy on the stage even called out loudly to his dad to take his photo. After his first dance, my son had another performance with the melodica band to end the show.

A teacher emcee explained to the parents that the kids had been working very hard for the past few weeks to prepare for the show and were very excited to perform.
