Wow, I have so much to say & no idea how to formulate this so it comes out right ... So here it goes.
I have a 7 year old that is in an elementary school in Dekalb County. She starts school this week and I am dreading the inevitable Spirit Night which sometimes occurs at Chik-fil-A. Now, with the petition I launched and the interviews I did it would be so hypocritical if I let her participate. What's a parent to do? I don't want to disappoint my daughter and I definitely don't want to back down from this stand I've taken, so in compromise I sent a letter to the PTA in hopes they will change the restaurant venue.
The happiest part of this dilemma for me was the outpouring of support from both the teachers and the school community. To find out that teachers wrote letters before I did really makes me proud as a parent of this school. Hopefully the PTA will see our side and go along with the fight for equality for all. If not I believe the best compromise is that my daughter participates in the festivities but no eating or drinking of any of thier menu items so I know our money is not going towards any WinShare programs.
What do y'all think? Did I sell out to my 7 year old or did I compromise for all to win? I'd love to read your comments.
