Well, Conner took his “ham” status to a whole new level at tonight’s performance. He decided to do a lot of the moves backwards, to the point it obviously wasn’t a mistake and it was distracting to the performance. Of course, people laughed, thought he was cute.
I didn’t though. I knew he could do better, and performing isn’t about showing off yourself, it’s about being part of a group. The sad thing, is we had a talk about it last night and today after school.
It’s sadly just unacceptable for me. I almost ran up on the stage and yanked him off…. I was too embarassed to do it though.
I don’t know what to do. I’ve decided we’re taking a break from starting arts. I want him to have positive feelings towards performing, but perhaps first grade boys are just too young?
Anyone found a good user manual yet?
