Aaronic Priesthood, Home Teaching, and the "Two Deep" Rule?
Our ward has a large number of AP holders with either inactive or non-member fathers, meaning that these young men can't be paired up with their father for home teaching as would normally be done. One of the inactive fathers recently raised a fuss that he wasn't comfortable with his son going home teaching with an unrelated adult male. There are other issues in play with the father that make his motives suspect, but I do think he brings up a valid point.
My question is how do your wards/branches handle youth protection issues as they relate to the YM? I am a big believer in the "two-deep leadership" principle taught by BSA and it seems like most leaders observe that with respect to "Scouting" activities, but I often see the principle ignored as it relates to home teaching and other situations that aren't pure scouting (providing rides, etc.). Has anyone ever seen any guidance from Salt Lake on the issue? I've had YM callings in three different wards now and everytime I bring it up people look at me like I have a third arm growing out of my butt! Thoughts?
