your religion or do you allow them to decide what they believe for themselves.
My husband was raised Mormon and I was raised Presbyterian. He left his church do to he didn't believe in the ways of the Mormons and I didn't care for how the Presbyterians interpreted the bible. We both did the research on religion and came to the conclusion that organized religion died with Jesus on the cross. We hold bible reading when we have time once a week or more when we need it and what the verse means to each one of us since our children were little. Now our oldest is Christen, our middle is Buddhist, and our youngest is spiritual trying to find out what religion work with him.
Quoting Hannahluvsdogs:We don't practice a religion, but we encourage our kids to learn about what others believe and make their own decision.

My husband and I have our own beliefs but we don't push them on others including our kids.
We are a Cathollic family but our children are well educated on other religions. We have allowed our 19, 17 and 15 year olds to chose what they believe but asked that they simply respect our beliefs when they're in our home and around their siblings. We do not force our religion upon them.
They have all decided for themselves.
My thing was always to expose my children to religion and allow them to make up their own minds.
