Everything you do or don't do influences your children, so no I don't think you can avoid influencing them. I want to share my faith with my kids, I think this lays the foundation for when why start forming their own thoughts about the big questions about life.
I want them to be kind to others and see every persons belief system as important and valid to them. I want my kids to be strong in what they believe, even if it turns out to be different from mine. I just want them to feel secure in what they believe without belittling others, I hope that is the influence I've passed on to them.
