A lot of people say that they raise their children to be whatever religion they are. I have to ask why? Why does your child have to be a certain religion just because you are? Did you not have a choice about what religion you are or are not? I am going to teach my child about every religion so that when it comes time for him to make a decision he has an educated one instead of a biased one. I don’t understand how people WANT their children to be raised closed minded!
I am writing this in response to a post about death that I read. A mother wanted to know how to teach her child about death, but refuses to “lie” about heaven. Why does it have to be a lie? Why can’t you say “Well, mommy and daddy believe this, but some people believe this. It is up to you to decide you what you feel is right.”
I guess what I am saying is why do we force our own beliefs down our children’s throat without exploring other ideas as well.
