My husband, daughter and myself have been going to church together since she was born. For the first year, we sat out in what I like to call "general population". Well, right at about a year, we had to start sitting in "solitary". Now, the cry room has zero air conditioning, and the speaker doesn't work unless the priest, deacon, reader,etc. is at the podium (their wireless mics don't come the the cry room....impossible to hear). Also, many of the parents feel that it is appropriate to let their kids run wild in the cry room. My daughter sees this, and that's when she starts acting up. I asked my husband last night if he heard a single word of any sermon, homily, or reading, and both of us said absolutely NO. He said it feels like the only reason we're there is to sweat and give them a check. What would you do???

I'd sit in a pew toward the back near the cry room. If she acts up, I'd take her into the vestibule or outside. The way your church's cry room is set up, doesn't encourage families to use it. Does the pastor know that the wireless mikes can't be heard in there and that the AC doesn't work? You could try going to an earlier service too. Our cry room is a lot less crowded at the 9 than the 10:30.
