We had a special reception for our volunteers yesterday..On the invitation we tell parents it's for adults only and child care will be provided. Of course there are parents who bring their kids and we remind them of child care and most of them have no problem with it. Anyway, one of my parents came and had both her kids..When I handed her the raffle ticket I told what room the child care was in. She took her kids and about 5 minutes she walked back in and said the kids didn't feel like watching a movie. Well, I was trying to help and said to the the kids (In my most cheerful way and acting a little surprised) "You dont want to watch a movie?" and then I said (again in a very cheerful way), "It won't be for very long!" At that point I saw this parent's expression change and she said they were leaving. I don't get it..I was trying to be encouraging to try and get the kids to stay and watch the movie so she could enjoy the reception and she gets upset at me. This is the only time we ask that children be left at home or have parents use the child care. I don't think that is asking a lot. The parents enjoy it and most don't have a problem with that request. Things like this bother me. The last thing I wanted to do was upset one of my parents.. Was I out of line?? I wasn't demanding at all, I was just trying to help.
