Re: mandatory Trainings
- Excellent response!
I find it hard to believe over and over again that parents and leaders are NOT WILLING to take the trainings offered to them and be safe. It scares me when a parent says to me that they won't take the YPT or that the parent doesn't care if I have taken the training - but is willing to turn his or her child over to me to babysit them for a week of Day Camp.
Leaders constantly complain that they are overwhelmed or do not understand or know what they are supposed to do- that they constantly being asked to help or volunteer- gee I'm sorry did they not realize that then they created a child that maybe they might have to spend some time with that child?
Also, if a person volunteers their time- I want to know that they have some sort of skill or qualification to teach my child something or interact with my child. I agree that it should be mandatory. Any adult having contact with a child (especially mine) should have training.
I don't think asking someone to learn how to be better is too much- if it is they are not in the program for the right reason. I applaud every leader and parent who feels the kids in the program are worth their time.
