Any other parents here ever get nervous for their kids...

When they are performing in a concert and have a solo or when they are in a play and have a lead role?

My daughters school is having their Fall Concert tonight and they are doing "Songs from Broadway". The choir students got to have choices in some of the songs that are going to be part of the program. My daughter is singing songs from "Phantom of The Opera", "Guys and Dolls", a duet from "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and her Senior Class Singers are doing "Seasons of Love" from Rent.

I am both nervous and excited for her.....will love her no matter what but I know she wants to do really well.

Mine aren't old enough for something like that, but I'm sure I'd be anxious internally. Do your best to project confidence in them, and you're there no matter what happens.

Don't tell her, "We'll still love you even if you mess up", because it will acknowledge the fact that you considered the possibility.

Have a shot of whiskey with her before the show. It will calm the nerves.

Mine luckily inherited her mother's singing talent and has a beautiful 1st Soprano voice....I am her biggest fan. I tell her all the time she is naturally talented and just go out there and sing like no one is listening.

But still I get anxious for her because I know that in HS what you fear the most is looking bad in front of your friends.

I imagine every parent gets nervous about their kids.

If fact the art of parenting is probably an endless job of dealing with various states of nervousness.

The most off-beat guy in my Jr.High/HS was also one of the most singularly genius I've ever come into contact with. Imagine every thing that would get you nouggied in HS in the 80s and he had it.

His dad was the old-fart 90% deaf chemistry teacher [since he was 90% deaf, it was a tradition that the class smart ass would answer 'here' for everyone in class].

He lettered in tennis.

He didn't participate in any social clubs, but was sole member of several academic ones.

At the talent show, while most were doing dance numbers or trying to play rock songs, he took 'best in show' with a Rachmaninoff piano solo.

Reminiscent of Rushmore, before 'Rushmore' existed.

Dude ended up as THE national merit scholar. Had full rides and acceptances to 90% of the Ivy league.

What's this ramble about? I guess that, even in the throes of HS, I recognized that 'being cool' should ever stifle true talent and ability. THat guy lived/lives a richer life than anyone else in our class, even though he waded through HS with minimal attention/cred/cool, because his pops kept his eyes on the prize.
