(That leaves it in your hands.) And no, I wouldn't grandfather in Boy 2 primarily for his misbehavior but also because he is much too far away from reaching the new age requirement.


* You may want to have rules like misbehavior can only happen once before the child's right to usher is revoked for the season. In addition, a child of any parent found to have lied about the child's age will not be allowed to work as an usher for two seasons.)

I like this approach!

I think this is a really good way of handling it.
I too am curious as to what is involved in "ushering". I would be quite suprised to arrive a theater and have a 5 year old take me to my seat. Unless it was a children's performance or something.

I would too, and a child of any age is the last one that I would call in the event of an emergency or a problem with seats.   And those are the things I associate with ushers duties.
