 What are your thoughts on the proper behavior at awards ceremonies and concerts?

I HATE when people yell out at these kinds of things. It's not a sporting event, it's a concert/ceremony indoors!!

There was even a lady that was SHHHHHing her young child louder than the child was even talking through the whole thing and my DD could even hear her from the stage!

I think people should be quiet until it's time to applaud.

 Sometimes I think that the grown ups are worse than the kids.  Cat calls, screaming out nick names and jumping up and down like you were just told to come on down on the Price is Right are not necessary at a concert/awards ceremony at the kids school.

 Glad I'm not the only one.

AND the thing is, I really think it embarrasses the kids on stage.

I agree.  I think it's bad behavior and really obnoxious.

 I know that it would embarrass the heck outta me if I was their child.  Most of the time I'm embarrassed for the poor child and I don't even know them.

 hmmm that's a tricky one because by saying something I could very well start a situation that my in fact embarrass myself and my child. 

Oh who the hell am I kidding, yep I'd say something.  Most likely not directly to the person, but loud enough to my hubby that the offender would hear me and hopefully get the hint.

There was a person with an infant at my brother's HS graduation.  I left my oldest son home with a sitter, he was 6 months old at the time.  Anyway this infant was crying all during my brother's speach, he was valadictorian.  When leaving I snidely asked the infant's mother if she ever heard of a baby sitter.  She just gave me a glare. lol

 I'm so hoping that all the little kids are left at home for the graduation. We got a letter stating that little ones still needed a ticket and it was advised to leave them home.
