Look at these shy tweens… standing there on the sidelines with their phones, instead of gettin’ Jiggy with it on the dancefloor.
But hey… can you blame them?
- They’re growing up in a social media world. Who needs the “real” world?
- Most Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties, to put it lightly, aren’t all that entertaining (read: most of them are BORING)
And when you put those two together – don’t be surprised if the kids are more focused on taking selfies, posting them on Instagram and comparing who got more likes.
Bottom line – this isn’t the 90’s anymore. Kids these days have smartphones – and they’re not afraid to use it.
There’s no point in denying it: if you want your guests to actually have fun at your kid’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah party – you’ll have to raise the bar (pun not intended).
