Ginevra Posted September 24, 2012 Share Posted September 24, 2012 I'm wondering what The Hive thinks about a situation like this: At a church we used to attend, there was a man who worked with Sunday School kids. My son was in his class and this was when ds was probably around 6 or 7. I never saw him do or say anything inappropriate to my son or any other kid. But he set off my instinctive "creep-o-meter." He just had a demeanor that seemed snakeish and abnormal. In this particular case, it was soon moot because we were planning to find another church and so I didn't really need to resolve my hesitation to have my kid in class with that odd guy. But I do wonder what others would do. I don't think it would be fair to pull my child out of the class or tell others that, though I have no evidence of anything sketchy, I just plain get a weirdness vibe from the guy and, based on that, I'm pulling the kid out. I think that goes too far towards the "every guy who volunteers to work with kids is a creep" suspicion. But I do lean towards the tendency to honor my instincts and when I can avoid someone who sets off my creep-o-meter, I do. What do you think?
