Put Down Your Camera and Shut Up Already!

Advice for parents on how to behave during kids' school performances and assemblies.Like so many parents, I’ve just emerged from a flurry of end-of-the-year school performances and assemblies. I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted!

Risa, I couldn’t agree with you more. So get ready and watch for my top three DON’TS for parents attending a child’s performance.

Has this ever happened to you?
