  • I would love for my children to have friends of different faiths and participate in their traditions as well as ours.

  • Nope. Should I?

    Answer by SleepingBeautee at 7:15 PM on Dec. 3, 2010

  • Not at all! In fact, I WANT my kids exposed to different religions, so that they know there isn't anything to be afraid of, and that there's no reason to judge people who have different beliefs than we do.

  • Not at all. I am all for my daughter embracing diff religions and cultures. And by that I mean being open minded and respectful

  • No I wouldn't have any problem with it. I think it's important to understand the beliefs and customs of other people. Also it sounds like fun.

  • Sleeping - I hope not. I am just kinda spamming everywhere asking since I am excited because my 4 year old gets to do that tomorrow night. He is excited too because he has been interested ever since the Playhouse Disney monkeys started talking about Hanukkah.
