    Me either, but, I think I'm past that now. My youngest is in HS and probably doesn't get messed with much. He could take our bishop in 2 seconds flat if necessary. Let me be clear....it would NEVER be necessary.....our bishop, like all others we've had, is awesome. I know that isn't that case for everyone, but it has been for us. Not all our YM/YW leaders have had my trust though.

    I think a window would be a good idea, and you could handle it just like you handle the parent option, by having the window open or close. If it's appropriate to open it, or if a parent wants it open, by all means open it. I also like allowing parents in the room, but I have to assume this will decrease the number of confessions in those situations.

    That's probably the solution that will be implemented in the future. It needs to be there -- but not in every circumstance.

    inappropriate interviews

    Working with youth requires different rules.

    I work with a youth oriented group through work

    We NEVER interact with a single youth with only one advisor there. Ever. Doesn’t happen.

    That’s supposed to be the rule for all of Boy Scouts as well. And in speaking with my wife that’s also the rule for Girl Scouts.

    As honorable and awesome as 99% of the oriole are, you have to plan for the 1%

    I assume the 1% is Peter Angelos?

    Would you join me in a fast opposing the unwritten white shirt requirement?

    I'm not trying to make light. This guy had a legitimate concern. But they changed the policy. He won. Time to move on, man.

    Thats what makes me chuckle so much about this. What he ultimately wants is a complete non starter (no more one on one interviews). He also completely ignores the other side (sometimes, a child needs an "independent" to confide in). Hes also hitched his wagon to the Dehlin train which may get him more followers but ultimately blows his credibility completely away.

    in Priesthood opening exercises we used to all stand and recite in unison the Stake Aaronic Priesthood mission statement (which had 10 bullet points like "we will treat women with respect", ""we will strive to pray each day" and other simple niceties). I recall one Sunday looking around, everyone in their white shirts chanting this theme, shuddering and thinking if this doesn't resemble a Cult, or an episode of the Outer Limits, then I don't know what a Cult is?
