Just An Idea

We had Stake Conference this weekend and I wish I could have heard more than a couple minutes of the talks. So I have a suggestion for future stake conferences. Since they usually pipe the conference in from the chapel to several "overflow" rooms anyway, it would be great if they would take a big one (like the Relief Society room, or maybe even several rooms) and put chairs around the outside with a ring in the middle, bring in the TV, and move the Nursery toys into that room so that parents can hear the conference and watch kids who won't sit quietly on hard metal chairs for two hours. Quit pretending that the entire stake's children can fit into a 12 foot by 12 foot room just because it has colorfully painted walls, and quit pretending that parents will come to Stake Conference when they will get just as much spiritual instruction from staying home.
