My children are 4 & 2 1/2. My DH is Christian, so we are not teaching them either path. However, I feel it's important for them to learn the very bare basics. I have gotten them a couple of story books about the myths (greek, norse & christian) and they love them. But I'm not sure what to do beyond that. We don't want to get in to actually teaching beliefs, but more along teaching the "way of life." The problem is it's hard to do one and not the other.
Any tips would be great. We want our kids to be 100% open when they get to a point where they can choose their path and believe it's wrong to pick for them. But we still want to involve them in the "non-religious" aspects of our belief systems... We do Yule & Christmas for example, but leave the religious part out - we just do a story, special dinner & gifts. Even though the myths are religious, we don't teach them - but just treat them as any other book...
