How To Prepare Your Child On The Day Of The Show
On the day of the show, make sure that your child is well rested and has eaten before the show. You can take some snacks along if you like. But avoid things like candy which can be very noisy to remove from the wrappers in a quiet theater.
Take along something quiet to do with your child while you wait for the show to begin. Also be sure to arrive not too much before the show. If your child is too young, too long a wait can become a difficult wait. About twenty minutes before the performance begins is a good time to come in. If you’ve arrived too early at the theater, you could find something to do with them outside.
Be sure to have your child make a rest-room visit before you enter. Otherwise they can get fidgety in the middle of the show and fail to enjoy it. Also, if there is a problem that you need to solve, go out into the lobby and don’t let your child disturb the rest of the audience.
Helping your child to develop a love for the theater is one of the best things you can do for your child. The theater offers one of the greatest cultural pleasures and as a parent; you will gain a great sense of satisfaction from watching him grow up with an appreciation of the fine arts.
