Ideabaker- inappropriate during greeting

I think I would try two things with kids who consistently have trouble during the greeting. First, I'd use your skip after 30 sec (which even sounds a bit long). It's a logical consequence to not being able to greet a person in the expected time. I wouldn't make a big deal out of it, I'd just ask the greeter to move on. Then, I'd take my kiddos aside and practice with them what the greeting should look like and how timely it should be and ask what they need in order to participate in the greeting. Try it again the next day and see what happens. Keep trying it until they are finally successful. Some of the acting up may be in response to the attention they receive for it, so try moving on quickly.
