What happened? How could this have been handled differently?
Here are a few questions that came to my mind, but would love to hear your thoughts:
- What is really underlying the decision? Reputation? Ego? False pride?
- There seems to be a lack of understanding of how boys/girls develop. Many kids dress, act, behave like their counterparts.
- Why a letter? Why was there not a face-to-face meeting with the grandparents?
- How does this decision reflect Jesus’ teachings about children, the Gospel, discipleship…etc?
What do you think?
