My kid HATES anything to do with singing and dancing and literally cringes if anything remotely girly or romantic comes on t.v
This year his class are doing a piece on the movie Fr0zen.
Anyway, he is struggling with it big time.
Personally I think these productions should be an opt in our out kind of thing, not every kid enjoys being up on stage. I hated anything to do with bringing attention to myself as a kid.
Apart from his obvious awkwardness about it all, the timing of the show is putting us under a lot of stress to attend too.
Come 4-5pm my DD is clung to me and if I have to put her down then it's a scream fest.
DS has to be at the school (not even in our area) by 6:15.
DD will be doing her cluster feeding thing and I don't breastfeed in public.
My DH has to leave work a couple of hours early to meet this deadline.
It's just stressful all around.
His part in the production is tiny.
He has a bit of singing to do with all the boys, and they're dressed in dark clothes as part of the background.
How frowned upon would it be if we just didn't take part?
This is all new to me, honestly there seems to be more put in to these productions and fund raisers than anything else. I just want my kid to go to school to get an education. If he doesn't want to take part in this he shouldn't have to.
I feel like I'm alone in this though. It seems it's a no questions asked situation, here's your list of things to get and the money we will be needing for the costs so just show up!
