Kid Hell. This is the title of a recent entry on a blog that I read. And I'll be glad to link you to it...as soon as I figure out how to do so. LOL!
Let's try this: http://myblessedhome.blogspot.com/2006_07_01_myblessedhome_archive.html
In this article, the author is not a fan of nursery, children's Sunday school, children's church or any such programs.
NOW...don't get your britches in a bunch! I was a bit...well, I have no good adjective. I wasn't angry, I wasn't confused...I guess I was intrigued.
I am the CE coordinator for our church. It is quite large. We run about 125 kids in our Sunday school in classes kinder - 6th grade. And THAT'S SUMMER. It will go up next week. My job is to call the teachers that show up every Sunday to see if they need supplies, prayers, whatever. I also have trainings in which we discuss classroom management, as well as "fun" things to do beside read the scripted lesson and pass out the assigned color page.
I was intrigued by the article and it was a GOOD THING! It was good because it helped me to see the way some parents may view the Christian Education program. I want my kids to be safe, well cared for and feel the love of Jesus Christ. This article has given me some WONDERFUL ideas of things that I can do to help the children AND their parents learn the Bible.
So, if you read the article and you are miffed at all...please don't be. It is well-written and brings up wonderful points. Instead, please channel your energies into prayer for me that I might continue to grow in my position and help the teachers AND students achieve all they should.
