I've been thinking about this short encounter the day my daughter and I went to her preschool to sign her up. She is standing/sitting on the bench slightly behind me while I'm talking to one of the staff behind the desk. Then an older almost elderly man stops to talk to my three year old. I didn't like it. Right now I'm reading Protecting the Gift by Gavin de Becker and he teaches to watch for the signs that are always there that dangerous people always give and to listen to your intuition. My intuition tells me the guy isn't right. Maybe I'm being mean but the way he smiled at her with his thin skin stretching away from huge teeth and the corners of his mouth looking like they stretched all the way back to his ears. He was right down on her level and seemed like only inches away from her face. Seemed almost like he wanted to devour her. He only looked at me and smiled for a moment. I've only seen him there one other time.
It's a good preschool I've had my other child attend over ten years ago. My daughter loves it. She loves school.
I'm thinking to ignore my feeling would be a stupid mistake. I don't know if I should talk to the school or just pull my daughter out and somehow (finding the money) put her in a new preschool.
