By Erma Bombeck As the end of another school year approaches it will be necessary for some parents to appear on the school grounds for graduation ceremonies. If this is your first graduation whether 8th Grade High school or Colleg Eyou want it to be a memorable one. As a Parent there is a code to be adhered to. First when arriving with your son or daughter do not Park in a prominent place lest you give the impression you and the graduate Are travelling together. Select an obscure spot behind the Power Plant sit rigid for five minutes with eyes straight ahead to give your son or daughter time in mix n match your Spring wardrobe does t have to be very expensive. A few pleated skirts in Neutral colors can be mixed and matched for the whole season. Blazers blouses vests and pullovers in lightweight knits will All go with the new pleated skirts. Which to exit hastily and arrive at the auditorium alone. Second adhere to the modest dress code. No Long hair Bright colors hats White socks or a i am an american Button. When the graduation line is snaking Down the aisle past your seat do not repeat do not smile at your child. This is humiliating to a graduate to be recognized by a Parent. You Are to stare straight ahead in a casual Way like you Are waiting for a physical. Occasionally you will see a Brave Parent who defies the Wrath of his children by daring to bring cameras to the graduation. This takes real guts. I have seen graduates self destruct before their parents eyes run off the stage to join a religious order or become quite hysterical and shout a what can you expect from a nut who named me Clarice Spiro Veronica a who until that moment was known throughout the school As big Mike the same goes with applause at the moment they receive their diploma. To initiate any kind of Pride in your child at graduation is second in sin Only to stealing and coveting at the end of the ceremonies it is Bug off time for parents. In 55 Short minutes your son or daughter has inherited the Earth and All its problems. He or she has been told they Are ready to change the world meet the challenges make the peace and restore order. They Are educated Independent committed to the tasks that lie ahead. They must take their place As leaders in this society and make the difference Between Success and ultimate failure. Of.
