Ask The Eye Choosing That Safer Stress Free Thanksgiving Plan

Dear Eye View

I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year and I don’t want to invite two people: my sister’s boyfriend and my uncle. Both for the same reason. My sister’s boyfriend was accused of child molestation but pleaded out to assault on a child. I don’t doubt the original accusation. My sister won’t go if he is not invited; my parents won’t go if he is. I have small children and won’t have time to watch all of them around him in addition to hosting. My uncle actually was convicted of child molestation many years ago. But he has come to family events regularly since being released from prison. Again, I can’t really monitor him throughout the whole thing, and quite frankly I don’t want to deal with the stress of having these two in my house with my children. My grandparents will throw a fit if he is not invited, though. Should I suck it up and deal with the stress? Maybe assign them unofficial babysitters? Or should I just deal with the fallout and not invite them?

I understand your concern. Having to come up with a policy to deal with the multiple child molesters puts into perspective the average Thanksgiving dilemma. Tell your relatives you are not hosting the Thanksgiving meal this year in an effort to choose a safer more stress- free holiday plan. Hope this helps
