They acted like I told them to kick a puppy and light themselves on fire!

My kids seriously had a meltdown when I said we are going to start going to church on sundays and that I want to sign them up for youth group. It was totally ridiculous! They are 12 and 14 for goodness sake! My son who is the oldest said I don’t want to be around a bunch of kids who are going to be sitting there talking about god and my 12 year old daughter said I’m ruining her social life because she likes to sleep over friends houses on weekends or have friends over and sunday church is just going to interfere. She actually cried! Wtf?!? I don’t even know what to do. They are so freaking ridiculous.

Why don’t they get a choice?

Why the sudden change? Why force them into religion? Why not encourage it. Have they been before?

Force them. That’s the best way to ensure they grow up to be atheists.

Because they are minors and I get to make these decisions until they are 18. I really think they’d benefit from getting involved with a church and youth group that focuses on community.

Why did you wait until they are 12 and 14 and not bring them when they were younger??

You're ridiculous for acting like it's okay to suddenly force religion on them.

At 12 and 14, they should be given a choice, especially when this hasn't been their norm.

I just think it would benefit them. No they’ve never gone.

It's a little late to be forcing church on them.
