If my children bother you during church, and there are adults on both sides of them who don’t think their “disruptive” behavior is at all problematic, it’s not okay to lean over the bench and threaten my kids with making them come back to sit with you from now on, especially when we are sitting right there. (And you wonder why they shy away from you when they see you in the halls…)
WE are the parents, and WE will deal with our children accordingly, when we feel like there is a problem that needs to be addressed.
YOU? Are not the parents, and have no business disciplining our children for us.
Next week, and from now on, I really hope you’ll choose a new seat. Because if this happens again? WE WILL HAVE WORDS. And they won’t be nice ones.
