Seems like that's too much.

Not your problem this teacher couldn't find a summer camp or other program for her son to be in. While the job is caring for children, this is a place of work and professionalism. You shouldn't bring your kids to work unless on designated, specified days. And that's what he is -- a kid in a work setting. Is he even legally eligible to "volunteer?" What are the child labor laws? Unless it's a program, mentorship, or other recognized program that other kids aged 12 can be involved in - she's just taking advantage of a "look the other way" situation. Not cool.

With regard to safety, you have no idea if this person is certified in CPR or has otherwise been trained to be in an environment with very young children. It seems highly unlikely. Would most parents nowadays hire a 12 year old they don't know to babysit their children? Nope. Tell the pastor you don't think he should be there. Ask to be kept anonymous if you feel that it would be better handled that way. There are myriad reasons why, but they really shouldn't need to delve too far into your reasoning.

He's really burning through any goodwill he had coming into this as Obama's VP with the fiery speed of a meteor, isn't he?

Been through this process with a very close loved one, too, so I know how nerve-racking it can be to have to deal with insurance companies on top of trying to monitor, support, and advocate for someone with a brain/spinal injury. So glad to hear he's making progress and that he'll get the kind of care he needs -- and not what's the most convenient/cost efficient for the insurance companies. These kind of things really are victories.

Every episode of Pose is making me cry. I also LIVE for Pray Tell's Candy reads.

I heard about this and I still chuckle, because even that is drawing on some sort of newish Keanu appeal. Before John Wick people snickered a bit at his action movie cred. The first Matrix remains awesome to me, but more than a few laughed at his "Whoa, I know Kung Fu" deadpan.

I know it, but I'm seeing SO MUCH KEANU IS MY SOULMATE!! talk online in the last month or so. I get that he's had a new movie out, but it's very much a shock and disbelief that he's a cool guy/good guy.

Maybe it is some sort of publicist attempt at rebranding. Seemingly, he doesn't really care and is taking it all in stride. Maybe it's a trickle down Trump effect -- and that anyone famous who's even a slightly decent person is now new hotness? (This may be where we are now.)
