We just started going to a new church that actually has other young kids and great kids programs for all ages. I am considering trying out our son with the other toddlers so we can attend service for once (he usually gets too loud and one of us has to leave) and to get some interaction with other kids his age. But, he has never ever been away from me and my husband and has anxiety at the mere presence of strangers even when we are right there. I picture my son crying, scared to death the entire time wondering why we left him.
I am wondering if it is just too early to leave him alone like that, or if I should try to let him get to know the woman who lead the toddlers program before I leave him there by himself....or if I am holding him back socially by not letting him go.
What age did your kid start to attend Sunday school by themselves?
