You are a Christian and when your child grows up he or she becomes atheist or agnostic.
You are atheist or agnostic and your child grows up and he or she becomes a Christian.
You are ____ ( fill in the blank) and you're child becomes something totally different and very far from your religon or they way they were raised.
I think that this is a very delicate subject and just wonder how someone thinks they would handle it or if they have experienced it, and what was it like.
My brother and sister in law are VERY conservative Christians and I wonder if they're children will rebel one day or do something that they see as terrible and how they will react. I am an open minded Christian, I do wish for my children to have a life long relationship with God but I would not shut them out of my life if they didn't, I think a parents love should be unconditional.
