I have a situation that I have not had to encounter before. My Position at my Church is a Sunday School superintendant. Last week because of Christmas programs and such I expected the youth to be involved in preparing for their program presentation, however this one youth chose to attend adult sunday school. I did not think much about it at the time, I just considered this was a situation of a shy young boy who felt uneasy on the stage. This week , same young boy was in that class again so I had a short talk, asked if anything was wrong and I got the expected answer that all was fine. We talked about the teenage sunday school class and he told me he made a decision to start attending adult classes on a regular basis. My concern for him is leading me to believe that he is putting a protective shell of isolation around himself. I did talk to the young boy's mother and she is o.k. with him being in the adult class,but yet my concerns are that this is not the thing to do. I don't want to push this young boy and I know I must be more interactive with him in hopes that we at least could share whats going on in his life. My question is how some of you deal with such situations where teenagers are loners?
