Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix (HSGP) Message Board › Game night evolution

I waited to respond to this thread, for 2 reasons: first of all, this topic upset me. I feel that my children in particular are not a part of this problem so much as a part of the solution. My daughter Celia is the oldest kid in HSGP. She takes it upon herself to watch over the littler kids - help them play, keep them safe, and break it up when they become too noisy. But also I wanted to attend another game night and see if it was just an internet mis-communication problem that could easily be solved in person. We did attend last month's game night, and the kids and I found it very frustrating.
Hi, Sadie --
How old is your Celia? I've only made it once (shrug/chagrin) to a HSGP meeting so far, and probably part of it was that I felt awkward wrangling my kids while I was there. Anyway, I'd love to offer to meet up offline sometime, especially if our kids are even remotely close in ages. Maya is almost 8, and Gavin is 4-1/2.
Also, I would be willing to help out with watching kids on a rotating basis IF it were planned out for the Game Nights. Who else would be interested?
