B'nai Mitzvah Blues?

In a New York Times article, author Bruce Feiler reports on a new trend in B'nai Mitzvah preparation:  teaching children how to behave during the service and at the party.

What are we seeing here in Westchester?  Are centerpieces being routinely dismantled, as the article suggests?  Or are we fortunate enough to have the only well-behaved thirteen year olds in the nation?  And if we do have a similar issue here, do you think the problem needs to be addressed by the parents or by the schools?

Read the complete article here, then let us know what you think.  And while you're browsing, stop in for a visit with Alia Ramer at Our Tribe and Joy, whose original blog post kicked off the article.
