I was reading the answers to the outlaw religion question and it sparked this. Ive been thinking about this for sometime now. I feel like there is an attack on parents of all faiths and their sovereignty is being threatened. Its like if you teach your children something that someone else feels isnt right or is potentially harmful, then they feel like they have a right to say so. I think the day is coming where you can be held responsible for just sharing your view of the world with your child. Everyone of us have things we feel are wrong in the world or have something we don't agree with. At what point does it make it wrong to teach your child and who gets to decide? Just something I was thinking about....please be nice to one another.

We have always allowed the kids to join in conversations or just listen. We discuss so many things. they ask we answer to the best of our abilities. If we don't know we look it up. There have been many time the kids put a spin on something that we haven't thought of. they make us think. Because of these Debates that happen here. The older kids in school have the facts and are able to discuss intelligently. When they put the facts out there that are indisputable other's can get upset then they through out the "your just stupid" remark. Usually the kids laugh and say prove me wrong. Even the teachers that don't really agree with our kids love having them in their classes because conversation is happening. Minds can change even our own. So it's not really about teaching them what we believe it's conversations so they can make up their own minds.
