My sister and I were raised in a home with Christian values. I stuck with it, she didn't. She's adamantly anti-Christian as well, and is raising her son as an atheist. Obviously she can believe whatever she wants, and it's totally her right, it just makes me sad sometimes my sister and nephew aren't part of something that I see as good and helpful to millions of people.
My kids tell my nephew things they do at church and Sunday school, and he's recently asked if he can go too. He's almost 7. I said he had to ask his mom. She said no. I talked to her about it, asking shouldn't it be his choice, and she said she'll encourage him to look into different religions when he's old enough to understand, but until then, she's raising him her way.
I just feel like it's kind of crappy of her. Would you say anything else to her? Obviously I would never sneak around her back about it, but does anyone agree it should be his choice?
