Do I want to be in the loop?

 I went to a meeting of our schools "Family Association" tonight.  The moms in charge were complaining about all the flack they get - people unhappy with changes, snotty remarks, rumors, etc.  I like these moms, support them, and help out when I can.  I only know what they tell me.  I don't do Facebook.  I don't text  I don't have lots of face-to-face time with any parents.  I volunteer in the lunchroom every week, I'm a room mom for a teacher that doesn't want anything from her room moms, and I help at Family Association events when I can.  I have no idea what all the behind the scenes stuff is. 

If I'm not part of the solution (standing up for people/things I believe in), am I part of the problem?

I wouldn't think that you are part of the problem if you help out where and when you can.  Sometimes you are better off not knowing about all of the behind the scenes crap.  I'm in the freaking middle of the loop at our school and I can't stand it most days.

You don't sound like part of the problem to me. You help when you can, and that's commendable.

Just b/c you don't know all the behind-the-scenes stuff doesn't mean you're part of a problem. You do what you can to help, when you can. Sometimes, I think it's better to not know all that other stuff : )

I totally agree!
