That's what I did last night. Sounds intriguing huh? Well not really, it just goes to show you how crazy society is today. I volunteered to co-teach Chatty's Sunday school class this year. In order to teach you have to meet certain requirements included but not limited to fingerprints and background questionnaire. I didn't realize all of the information I had to provide. Then we had a discussion about how we can't be alone with a single child, there needs to at least be two, etc. because of liability issues. It wasn't that way when we were kids ... scary huh? As a parent I am so happy that our church is so proactive when it comes to the child's safety. Some of the personal information included on the questionnaire were how long I have been a member (I couldn't remember and put 13 or 14 years - Mr. ESPN informed me when I got home it was actually 12) and a statement of faith. I am a very wordy person but was having a hard time with this. Not that I have a hard time believing it, I do, but actually putting it into practice everyday is difficult for me. I am hoping by teaching Sunday school it will help me become a better Christian and an example to my children and in turn a better parent.
OK ladies - I need some parenting help ....
Parenting Question 101 :What do you do when you have a. taken all of the toys out of your child's room, b. grounded them from all movies, games and said toys, c. taken away all blankies and lovies to sleep with and they still continue to misbehave, act disrespectful, rude and even laugh when they do something wrong? Note - I have tried spanking, timeouts, etc. Nothing seems to work.
Parenting Questions 102: Is it wrong to take away the one thing your child loves (i.e. blankies and lovies) if she refuses to eat even one bite of meat or vegetables? Just one bite, not an entire serving? Yes I know about sneaking stuff into foods, but I want to teach her to at least try one bite, that she can't live on hot dogs, bologna and ham as her meet source in life.
Edit from last post - Wedding is January 2, 2010; no we did not coordinate tops with A, it just happened that they all wore pink that day!
