Hello no. my children are raised as atheist HOWEVER I do tell them that when they become adults I want them to make their own decisions. OR now. Just educate yourself on every major world religion first. If one speaks to you then I will support that decision. However so far my oldest grew up and did that and agreed that religion is bat shit nutso lol
I would not, however if my children began to ask I would not hesitate to help them find out about any religion they want and allow them to make their own choices on what they'll believe in.
I thought it was important to raise my children with religion as a young mother. I wanted my children to have the option of believing or not. I felt giving them religious classes would be the first phase and then when they were older (middle to high school) expand their believes as they asked questions about life events and why I didn't attend church. At that point I felt they lived with some religious teachings and lived what they saw and could ask questions that would make their choice of accepting religion or not their option. My oldest child continued his catholic upbringing but is accepting to my beliefs of not believing. My middle child, I think believes in god but I'm not sure how secure she is and if she just joins her husband in his beliefs possibly. Just not sure. My youngest daughter follows my beliefs at this time.
Nope. Never. Mainly because I find religion to be super harmful, but also, people are going to judge literally everything you do as a parent, so, might as well do what you think is best.
Never. Ever. Besides, my children are intelligent and they determined on their own that they are atheists.
I raised my sons to believe in themselves first, and that they could choose to follow a religion, or not. Neither of them became believers, even though their dad tried hard to cram it into their heads. I am sad that my oldest son allows his wife to take their two kids to church. However, I say nothing as their minds will work it out as they grow and change.
No. If I ever have children I'm going to raise them to be compassionate, decent people. If they make the conscious decision to follow one of the many religious or spiritual belief systems, so be it.
Not even the slightest chance.
