I'm a teacher at a Preschool and I have a 6 year old boy who is a Jehovah's Witness. I'm a little confused about his beliefs. His mom doesn't want him included in any holiday lessons and doesn't want his birthday celebrated. He seems ok with it, but I feel bad when the rest of his class talks about Christmas and other holidays. She also requested that I not read any holiday books in front of him. He comes everyday. How do I work around this with the holidays coming up?Answer Question

The mom needs to home school, she also needs to realize that her child will always be exposed to Holidays. I do not understand what harm it will cause the child to listen to a Christmas story.

The public schools around here don't do any religion based holidays. They do the secularholidays but not the religious ones... They are pubic schools and therefore have a curriculum that leaves room for the public and all the people that make that public up... I still feel I would speak to her if I were you! She shoud be able to give you some ideas...
