Ask Ann Cannon: As a church leader, what’s my role in solving other people’s problems?

Dear Ann Cannon • I was recently called to be the Relief Society president in our ward. We have a lot of young couples in our congregation, including me and my husband. Here’s my problem: A couple of the sisters have asked me to talk to another sister (anonymously) about her son, who’s a bully in the children’s nursery. My inclination is to stay out of it, but I’m not sure. What do you think?

Dear New to the Job • I think your inclination is absolutely spot on. Injecting yourself into this situation would be a no-win move on your part.
