I feel like we’ve got our feet under us in primary now. We’ve got the day-to-day things under control and that we’re a strong team as a presidency. We’re really working to improve the spirituality of the children and to aid them in their scriptural literacy. We especially want the children to know how much we love them.
There are some parents, however, who are less than pleased with some of our decisions. Two of the most unpopular decisions? Asking the parents to please pick up the children when the block is up instead of letting them run wild in the halls (a child went missing for 15 minutes this summer) or making us sit with them for 20 minutes while the parents talked, and secondly, taking charge to make each child attend his or her assigned class (instead of choosing based on friends.)
I hope the parents come around and see that our intentions are good. I’m not sorry for any of our decisions, and I can’t believe these otherwise on-the-ball people are getting bent out of shape over these things. Seriously.
