Top definition
over-acting and/or over-performing the role of a parent in public making certain that everyone can hear their use of parenting skills; perhaps trying to demonstrate that they are the "perfect parent" when in fact they fail miserably at home.
Although Sara was standing directly in front of her 2 year old daughter in the store, she spoke loudly and explained in adult terms why her toddler shouldn't throw the food out of the cart. Sara spoke loudly to make sure that everyone in the market heard how she "disciplined" her child seeking the attention and/or praise of those around her.

Sara is a performing parent.
