My husband and I have been taking our son into the main sanctuary during church instead of letting him run and play in the "mother's room" during the service. We had be thinking that since he has learned to sit and wait nicely for his turn in the kids class and being almost two he can learn to sit nicely during the service.We also decided to do this because he was getting to the point where he would purposely get fussy and loud so he would get to go outside where it was more fun to play. Hubby is refusing to take him out no matter what he does in the main sanctuary. We have even had people ask him to take him out and he refused because he does not want to reward the behavior. I see hubby's point but we also have to be considerate of other people! Where do we draw the line?

You draw the line at the door of the sanctuary. No child should have to sit through an entire service. He is almost 2 and at that age its like torture to have to be still and quiet for so long. His attention span isn't long so he is bound to distract someone. I think that your hubby has good intentions, but he has to realize that your son is just a baby.
