That's what my brother told me the other day.

He and I were not raised within a religion, but were taught to respect them. My niece came home from 1st grade last week and said "johnny said his parents said they gave him presents, not santa". My brother told her to tell anyone who claimed this that Jesus was a crazy person who claimed crazy things. The government crucified him for his shenanigans (like they did for every crazy person at the time).

My niece is in an accelerated gifted class at a christian school.

Although my brother and I carry the same religious views, I disagree HIGHLY with his advice. I find myself disagreeing with his parenting often, but don't
say anything. (Not my kid) but it makes me wonder what kind of relationship dd and niece will have in the future. My dd is almost 5 and niece is 6.

Comments? Thoughts?

Yeah, I think that makes your brother a bit of a hypocrite.

I don't have any beliefs but I wouldn't bash what other people believe in. I dont think he should have told her to say that. Maybe if they were older but I think thats too young to have her telling other kids that IMO.
