by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy – SINFULSensitivity
Editor’s note: This one is short and not so sweet. Another case of a problem that could be resolved if someone, you know, actually TALKED to someone else about the issue.
I know this sounds silly but I need an answer NOW. When we go to a Church meeting and take our 3-month-old baby, our friend’s two-year-old boy keeps sticking his finger in my baby’s eyes, or other such things. I try to be nice and push his hand away, but he will not stop. How can I bring this to an end without causing a fuss?
You are worried about hurting someone’s feelings. Ask your infant if she is willing to suffer the feelings of pain to protect your social reputation?
