I went to a church today for the free drawing thing they were doing and they had a class for kids before the drawing was supposed to happen so I figured my son could go there if I kept an eye on him because he is only 2. So I kept coming out of the main church (the class was outside) and peeking around the corner to check on him. I have never been to keen on leaving my precious baby with strangers. It didn't make me very happy when they started taking his picture for their website without asking me first and they served him a snack without even asking if it was ok or asking about allergies. Anyway, the teacher seemed to be all offended that I kept checking on him. Would you have been upset if you were that teacher? How would have have handled it if it was your child?

I actually had a similar experience. In our church, a place we went to before our son was born, we gave specific instructions for them. Teens from the church were running the toddler room. I spelled out what foods he can and cannot have.....and it went in one ear and out the other. So when we went we kept him in the big church with us. Our minister asked why we didn't leave him. It was a big hint that the preference was on keeping children out during the main talk. Truthfully, we did just didn't go back until last Sunday. Now he is old enough and he has a different room. My child has some eating issues and I am not very fond of giving instructions and them not being heard. As far as the website....I also make that clear, where ever we go, his picture is not to be taken. I do that out of privacy. I would not post other children on my accounts or sites and I expect the same in return.
