I need your help with this situation. Family can be quite difficult sometimes. No, it is not my husband that is on my bad side, it is other extended adult family members that shall remain nameless.
Here is the scenario, “A, sing the Dragon Tales song that we taught you.” A (very sweetly, because she is just 3) – “Dragon Tales, Dragon Tales. Don’t you know that your butt smells? ” I am cringing inside because I can just imagine this little ditty being sung in church next Sunday. The thing is that this person is not a Christian and neither is the spouse, so they think that it is humorous to teach my children songs that make my body cringe. I discussed this with my dear hubby and asked him if I was overreacting (me, overreact?). He agreed with me that it was not funny. I feel that they are in some way making fun of the fact that we are Christians and that we have Christian values. I feel that it is disrespectful toward us. This is not the first little song that they have taught my kids, so I am afraid that it will increasingly get worse. The thing is that they are family, but I feel that I need to take a stand with my children. Do I not allow them to spend time with my children? What would you do? I really need help with this issue, because I want to handle it in a Christian way that will not damage my relationship with them or with God. I am going to be praying about it, but I am curious to see what you say, too. Thanks for your help!
