I actually think that's so wrong. It's abit like shoving it down his throat. Not just odd but in my personal opinion it's actually a bit out of order. A christian video and phamplet and using his birthday as an excuse to shove it under his nose, no, sorry I think that's wrong.
It's "The Resurection" and it's not aimed at kids as far as I can tell. I'm probably more concerned that they felt it necessary to aqcompany it with "God-bothering" leaflets (dh's expression not mine).
No we're not a different religion. In fact, having taken dd to a crib service on Christmas Eve was half thinking of going to the Family services at the local church. But that's the point. ds doesn't have any interest in religion and neither does dh. ds isn't bothered by it - just thinks it's odd a- end of story.
It's his mithering stepmum who can't get it out of her head. HOw sad am I?
As for the girlfriend, he started senior school in September and has been out with 3 different girls already and this is the 3rd stint with this one. Don't think it's serious
scaltygirl - that's awful!Reminds me of when my dad died and had been active on the local labour party in helping with fundraising. The labour councillor wrote in a card to my mum "God Bless XX - he held the flag of socialism high". I thought that was inappropriate for a condolence card and also didn't describe my dad either!
I did wonder if they were "Brethran" but only coz we have a brethran church not far from us. ds doesn't seem to know much about her.
