Hug Your Kids – By Showing up at School Band Concerts

Ah, Band Concerts - Packed with Proud Parents

“The love in your heads and your hearts don’t really mean much.” People are shocked when I say this, but then they nod in agreement. It’s why hugs are so powerful – they are love put into action.

I went to my daughter’s school band concert last night in Reno, NV. The local 6th graders played along with the junior high kids and the senior high students. Wow! What was just as amazing was there wasn’t a spare square foot in the bleachers for all their moms and dads.

Showing up for band concerts is another way parents put their love into action. All those parents had dozens of tasks they could be doing, but instead they sat for 2 hours to hear their child blow, bang or strum for their 5 minutes of glory. Everyone left feeling loved. Yea band parents!
