Re: The Hammer has Fallen
As a HS Band parent, I have been working to set my son up to understand the important parts of the big picture. In 20 years, kids aren't going to care that they didn't melt on the asphalt in a idiculously hot, droughty summer, nor will they miss getting home after midnight on a weekend.
As long as they have the opportunities to interact with the bandmates someone and maintain that sense of family, they'll be fine.
He had to admit that he's fine not melting on the asphalt, and really that he mostly misses his mates.
