Worship is equally important to community. They are two essential ingredients. Yep, i used to go for worship before i had kids, funny that. Now im really the babysitter.
The worship is tailored for children, thus, children's services. I do set boundaries. That isnt the issue here. The question is, whether the way i set them is adequate, and how far i go to set those boundaries. Thats the question of discipline and how one goes about it.
To beenmum, 5yo is in school.
I dont use rules as such, but principles and values. For eg. it is important to be considerate of others. making loud noises inside is inconsiderate to others.
I think children are capable of understanding that.
Btw, last week things went well. One person who i felt had been judgmental, was overwhelmingly kind all of the sudden. There were less people there, that probably helped too.
