Not sure if it’s been mentioned or not…. but in the last year, we’ve gotten a new children’s director at church.
Pastor’s son, sounds like right out of college for counseling degree… if he has experience with kids, I don’t remember hearing it mentioned, and from some of the overheard bits, I’m pretty sure it hasn’t been in a leadership role.
But, he does seem to do pretty well with them.
So I’ve been going back and forth this whole week as to whether or not to send him a message to try and gently suggest that on father’s day, the best strategy to avoid issues with dad-less kids is probably to have them focus their efforts on another relative.
Because of the issues in the past with teachers telling kiddo in pre-k and k to just make a craft for him anyway, for a dad who has never been involved in her life… I’m a bit worried as to how things are going to turn out.
But then, I don’t want to seem like the pushy parent… or the whiney parent… or the “world revolves around my kid’s special issue” parent.
Or to have to taken the wrong way that I don’t think he knows what he’s doing.
And if he’s got a degree in counseling, surely he’s more aware than to pull something that harmful as an answer.
But having to go through this again with someone new that I’m not real familiar with makes me nervous that this could be another rough day.
