I don't understand the need to force the "teachings" of god onto your kids from the time they are babies. IF they know and love god, won't it happen naturally? Either they have the love of god in their heart or they dont.
But when you indoctrinate from birth, isn't more like brainwashing vs listening to one's heart?

Because little minds are easily molded- the earlier you introduce them to your version of the 'truth' the easier it is for them to absorb it and accept it. After all, what child doesn't believe everything their parents/adults tell them?

Because the young are very impressionable and what is ingrained during childhoodusually sticks thereby ensuring that the cycle repeats itself.

RheaF: They will one day reach an age where they can choose for themselves, and they will be free to. But for now, and aas long as they are living under my roof they will practice our beliefs. So when exactly will they be able to choose for themselves? After they have left home or as teenagers? How do you honestly think you will react if your teenager tells you that they don't believe in god or that they are Pagan?
