Ok so my son attends an after school program at a local church and has been doing so for over a year and he has a great time going to different places they even paid for him to go to camp this past summer.Alright the thing is that he started going to service on sundays and that's fine but every week the people from there ask me if i wanna attend now i went a couple times but found that it just was'nt for me and i tried to get into it but kust could'nt,so now i tell them no but and they keep on on on on they keep on saying thingslike oh u should really really go.How can i get them to respect my choices not to go?Answer Question
Tell them calm but firm, that you've been asked so many times and you appreciate if they dropped the subject now. ou made up your mind and a "no" is not going to turn into a "yes".

In my 48 years of life. I have yet found a way to "make" someone respect my choices in life. lol
They either choose to or they don't, but I can't make them. All I can do is reiterate my personal choice if need be. And if push comes to shove, just not have anything to do with the people who are hassling me (for whatever reason). I know the not having to do anything with them part is tough when you child attend this program and so technically you are "involved". So, I would just reiterate my choice as often as needed, as diplomatically as I could. If it got to the point that I just couldn't take it any longer, I would be bluntly honest as to "why" I do not what to attend.
