Can Supernanny fix everything?

Yesterday parents were invited to a mass at school, to welcome the new starters. Sasha stayed in the room for around 30 minutes of the full hour which all the other children (and parents) stayed for. She started to get a bit stressed at the point where she, along with all her peers, was asked to go up to the front for a blessing with oil; she refused.
