Fun for the Whole Family
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has bemoaned that as a parent you learn “there is no such thing as fun for the whole family.” Well, as much as I admire Mr. Seinfeld, I have to say he is wrong. Clearly he has never been to Romp n’ Roll.
Among my many grandchildren, I have a set of triplets. And even though they are triplets, they could not be any more different from one another. Annie is an energetic athlete. Danny is a determined architect and engineer. And Ben is an enthusiastic song-and-dance man.
It might appear to Mr. Seinfeld that it would be impossible to find a place where all three children could be happily engaged in an enjoyable activity. And if he took them to any other early education program, he probably would be right. But at Romp n’ Roll, Annie can be enrolled in a Good Sports class, Danny can be enrolled in a Construction Junction class, and Ben can be enrolled in a Rhythm & Roll class.
The fact is that a healthy family must act as a unit. But it is also a fact that a family is made up of different individuals. And one of the things that makes Romp n’ Roll so special is the respect and appreciation for both of these realities.
