I don't force my religion on her. I teach her about it and when she is a teen and looks at other religions she is free to go to another one if she chooses. I am her mother regardless. I was raised apostolic (I wish that on no one) I converted to Islam.

I did when I was a christian.  My oldest stopped believing before I did and one of my daughters believes in The Universe and everything in it as a collective/connected energy, not really god, or a religion, and she believes in reincarnation, which is different from what I think.

Nope. I have a Wiccan and a agnostic leaning towards atheism. The only thing I 'force' is that they must respect other people's beliefs.

 I won't allow my 7-year old to attend certain churches because I vehemently disagree with the way they scare children into believing.  However, I have taken him to church services in the past and when he reaches a certain maturity level (12-13?  I'll have to wait and see), he'll be allowed to attend whatever churches he chooses to, or none at all.

Everyone "forces" something on their children; intentionally, or not. However, the word "force" tends to imply something negative.

Instead, I lead by example and teach my daughter about Judaism through my own actions as an adult.

Can I offer you some advice?

When I read your posts, the font is a pale blue.  It's difficult to read.  Honestly you should change it to something more easily readable.
