Why are we having "graduation" ceremonies for kindergarten? What the hell are they graduating from? Sandboxes and nap time? Should we give out trophies for potty training? Blue ribbons for successfully picking their noses? Maybe if we stopped turning every crotchfruit moment into some kind of celebration of mediocrity we wouldn't have to have dumbass parents mingling with other dumbass parents, all wishing they could be somewhere else and just itching to smack somebody because of it.

Haven't school administrators learned yet not to put too many parents together in the same setting? That many parents in one room increases the odds that you'll have at least one belligerent drunk in the crowd to a near certainty. Has Little League and Chuck E. Cheese taught these administrators nothing?

The dumbest part of the whole affair was that kindergarten kids had a GRADUATION.

What did they accomplish that year -- successful playing, snacking and napping?

Parent #1:  "My kid fingerpaints better than yours does!!"

Parent #2:  "Oh, yeah?  Shut up!!"

I have noticed the "graduation from everything" trend more since having kids. At least none of the ones I have been to involved toddler-sized cap-and-gown, which I have seen in other places.

The most annoying thing I have found is when about 10 or 15 relatives in the crowd decide to video the event using a 10" tablet.

They've been "graduating" from kindergarten since the 80's. This is not a new trend.

I drive special needs children to this school daily during the school year. If you saw the daily shenanigans in the parking lot at dropoff and pickup times with rude/ignorant/asshole parents behind the wheel, this story would not surprise you at all.

From outward appearances, this is a modern, very well kept school. They should offer parenting classes for the adults though.

While I agree with you in essence (that we give out awards for some crap reasons) this is not one of those times.

Moving from Kindergarten to real school is a big deal. Sure they didnt have to really do squat (there are the basics that should have already been taught at home, but we know that doesnt always happen) but I think it helps to build some confidence and a sense of accomplishment.

For instance, when you are potty training your kid, almost every child rearing book in the world says you should make a huge deal out of it the first few times. Cheering, calling the grandparents, hell everything short of a framed 8X10 in the kitchen. All that for taking a crap.

To keep it short, I get this one. I would not get one for 1st grade, 2nd and so on.

Of course you are absolutely right. It is exactly what we need in situations like this one. It should be mandatory that you receive gun training in either kindergarten or in first grade. Mandatory carry laws at 12. Situations like this require an armed populous to maintain order.

Piizzadude: Danger Avoid Death: Why are we having "graduation" ceremonies for kindergarten? What the hell are they graduating from? Sandboxes and nap time? Should we give out trophies for potty training? Blue ribbons for successfully picking their noses? Maybe if we stopped turning every crotchfruit moment into some kind of celebration of mediocrity we wouldn't have to have dumbass parents mingling with other dumbass parents, all wishing they could be somewhere else and just itching to smack somebody because of it.

Haven't school administrators learned yet not to put too many parents together in the same setting? That many parents in one room increases the odds that you'll have at least one belligerent drunk in the crowd to a near certainty. Has Little League and Chuck E. Cheese taught these administrators nothing?

While I agree with you in essence (that we give out awards for some crap reasons) this is not one of those times.

Moving from Kindergarten to real school is a big deal. Sure they didnt have to really do squat (there are the basics that should have already been taught at home, but we know that doesnt always happen) but I think it helps to build some confidence and a sense of accomplishment.

For instance, when you are potty training your kid, almost every child rearing book in the world says you should make a huge deal out of it the first few times. Cheering, calling the grandparents, hell everything short of a framed 8X10 in the kitchen. All that for taking a crap.

To keep it short, I get this one. I would not get one for 1st grade, 2nd and so on.


I'm replying to your post because I strongly disagree with you.

I somehow learned to take a shiat in a toilet without my mother going on Facebook and telling the whole world.

I somehow finished (not graduated) Kindergaten without any fanfare.

Graduation ceremonies from high school and college are appropriate.  Graduation from Kindergarten is just stupid.

Also, the Daily Mail sucks.

I remember, being in thed grade or so, close to the end of the school year, walked by a room, open door, they were having a party. "why the party?" I was told they passed kindergarten. What a stupid idea, I thought. Was back in 72-73 or  so.
Guy was 33, at one of these functions. Was he a grandparent?

Don't forget Norhood. And Walnut Hill, etc. I'm doing nothing more than stoking the irrational East-West rivalry.

And I only bring this up for lols but I was in the diamond seats last night for the Reds-Giants game. Family member got tickets at a charity event and it'll be the first and last time I'm in those vaunted, comfy chairs.

I teach in an urban low-income high school, and graduation is next week on Wednesday.  Each year I have to work supervision in the stands, and even though there's a police presence, people are still insane.  Last year a security guard working alongside me told me she had worked Chargers vs Raiders games where people were better behaved.

I work at an Elementary School near Baltimore and I haven't seen things get this bad, I've dealt with crap almost on par enough to know this is a-comin'. The mom who was doing the "heroin nod" during the 3rd grade recital was a very classy touch.

I have, however, seen a full out Chuck E. Cheese brawl in that ghost town shopping center off of Eastern Ave. It looked like two Tasmanian Devils with weaves going at it.

It's a way to get parents involved in the kids' educations and to get them to recognize that education is important, and it gives kids some experience on how to behave in formal ceremonies.  (The punch from TFA being a "don't".)

I agree it can get excessive, but it's much preferable than expecting kids to just march into school, do the same routine duties like one would in a sweatshop, then go home, and their only reward for it being that they get to do more of it next year.
