  • Absolutely. NO one knows for sure about any of it and they should always be respectful of what others believe

  • Yes, I do. I'm teaching my children to be free-thinkers but, to still respect all others, regardless of religion, gender, race or orientation.

  • no, but i do teach them to be respectful of ppl in general. ive never really thought about it b/c i was never taught that...i just knew to be respectful b/c other ppl's religions are as important to them as mine is to me. i never knew kids acted like that until i got on here and heard some of y'alls horror stories.

  • I am raising my son to be kind to everyone. I teach him that it is NOT okay to treat people differently because of how they look/love/think/believe/etc/etc/etc. I teach him that love is the most important thing, and to show love always is what matters most.

  • Yes, I am raising my dd to be a free thinker and to accept everyone for who they are and what they believe. I do teach her that it's unacceptable for someone to force their beliefs on others (especially when asked to stop). I don't want it done to my child and I definitely don't want her to do it to others.

  • I 100% do I grew up with the new age beliefs and omg so much crap iv gone through for it but i also raise my kids the same only i also teach them some of the beliefs of others so when they are older they can deice what religion they feel comfortable with. My kids also know not to bully or point out differences of someone else and im proud they respect others
