Do i stay when i feel so bad?
So, since October 2017 we have had a year 9 student help at Brownies on Fri evening that I help at and have done for 3yrs now on a volunteering basis. Brownies is a group of girls that meet up of primary age to play games and do activities together. Anyway, to start off with I got on with this student who came to help, she was doing it as part of an award which was meant to last 3 months. Anyway, she has decided to continue coming and it has caused some problems for me.
It got to a stage when I have felt she has being controlling me and being forceful. I’m not going into details about what happened, but it has got to a stage at times when I am close to losing my temper with her at times and I don’t know if I feel I can continue.
It has been brought to my attention that many of the Brownies feel the same about the student helper and they have told me at times that they have felt like leaving and me being there is the only thing keeping them from coming. I feel bad because I know we are going to lose Brownies if the main leader doesn’t do anything about it as I am close to leaving if things don’t improve. I have passed this on to the Brownie leader and she has said she will talk to me, but she hasn’t yet approached the subject with me. I feel that most of the brownies feel the same way of me and I have been approached from many of them that states they are feeling like this. I feel they need to talk to the Brownie leader about it, but I don’t think they will and until they do I feel the brownie leader won’t do anything about it because she can lose me and get another helper, but she won’t have been able to have a brownie group if she keeps losing them which I fear is going to happen.
What shall I do in this situation?
I can’t stand being unhappy at Brownies and it also really annoys me when Brownies come to me and explain how they feel about this brownie helper because I just feel there isn’t much I can do because I feel they need to tell the Brownie leader and I don’t think any of them have the confidence to.
