Something happened that I need to speak with fellow Catholics.
I'm very upset, so forgive me if ramble.
My son (9) is studying for a religion test on the Fifth Commandment. He was reading the text book out-loud, when he saw a picture of Pro-life demonstrators, with signs that say "Protect the Unborn"
Up until this point, all is calm, until he says, "Mommy is it true some women don't want to be mothers, so they kill their babies?" So I braced myself, for the talk. I asked him where he learned this. I was wondering if it was the teacher, I was puzzled on how come we weren't given notice about the subject matter.
It wasn't school.
DS normally rides in my mini-van. DH took him in his car recently...and forgot to clean it out. DH does pro-life work and had pamphlets in the back seat. DS found one, and asked DH about it. DH told him....but also told my DS to not let me know because I would be mad...and he would be punished.
So poor little boy has known about this for about 3 weeks, yet hasn't been able to speak to me about it. :( :mad:
Just some background, DS is not very mature 9 year old, when he plays he prefers younger quieter kids to play with.
Right now, I am furious with DH. This is one of the BIGGEST talks that he could have with DS but he did it on his own, did not inform me, didn't think I should know about it, and threatened punishment. :confused::mad:
I'm also furious that he was so careless with the material. What would possess him to leave it where our children could find it so easily? I'm an adult, and one of the pamphlets disturbs me.
My son is upset...he asked if he could speak to the school counselor. My head is spinning and I am seriously questioning my DH's judgment.
Please, help. :(
