Would you consider this indoctrination?

If your Child was to spend the night or eat dinner at our house, and witness us praying before we eat or go to bed. Then later ask questions about why and we answer just the questions as simply as we can.

  • As long as there is no gospel singers coming in and missionaries trying to tell my kids believe or go to hell than a bit of education never hurt. A simple we believe in x and that is why we do yand z is a good thing.

  • No, I would like to be aware of your practices before my child spent the night at your house though, so I could address the issue beforehand.

  • Everyone will be exposed to other beliefs, thoughts, feelings their whole life. As long as the family wasn't telling my child that they are wrong for what we believe then there is nothing wrong with answering quesitons in simplicity.

  • well wouldn't you normally know the person well before you let your child stay at their house? so if my kids were to stay at your house i should know that you do that.

    but if that were the case and i didn't know you that well, then no.

  • No, I don't think a one time occurrence counts as indoctrination.

  • What Roisin and gypsymama said. If they see you guys doing it and ask it isn't a big deal. If you insist my child participate while they are under your roof we would have issues. Now my child might participate out of respect but it should be their choice and not mandated at all.
