MrsRogers1992, I wouldn't be forcing my kids into anything. No struggling, abuse, of any sort. All I said was I will be highly enforcing the good path 24/7. It's not hurting them if you're teaching them good. I'd rather have obedient kids that knows right from wrong and chooses to do the right thing than kids who always acting out and don't listen to anybody just cause their parents think it's ok to just let them do what they want & look as if they do not care. And since children follow what we as parents do. It won't hurt for me to act how I would want my children to act & be. Thanks

We will definitely be teaching our children about God, but it will be their personal decision whether to accept Him into their lives or not. They will be loved and accepted no matter what. Our goal is to live in such a way that our children see our relationship with God and want the same for themselves. If there is no Christian school available for them to attend, we plan to home school.

Jen_Wes christian school spunds great. If could afford it for all of my children I would definitely send them. I think people try and force them selves to believe that we scare our kids into believing so that don't have a afterlife in hell. Who does that? I would never, my children know that God is a loving God and his son died for our sins and if you don't believe in Jesus and worship him for that then I do believe in praying for you. God or Jesus is not a cruel or intimidating person so I don't see why people are so quick to judge and disrespect others faith.

God come first in my family. My boys have tons of christian kids books and they enjoy going to church. I just pray for our nonbelievers because a afterlife in hell is not what you want. But those are their choices God still loves them and hopes that before he comes to get his people they will be followers of him. :)

After I have my baby, my family will be completed. & we will all be more focused on the right path. Our child will be in a Christian school & everything. It will be highly enforced at home & in public. I want to lead my child to the right path so he/she will not depart from it. Since us as parents are our children's biggest influence while they're young.

Absolutely not. There has been and will be no religious education in this house. My son's birthday is St Patrick's Day and he got a book from someone about St Patrick and the snakes and God speaking and all that... we've read it to him, but it's a fairytale just like the Easter Bunny. Our lives are governed by good morals and thinking of others and deciding the right thing to do because we want to be good people, not because we're scared of some fiery underworld.

My husband and I were both raised as Catholic however neither of us are religious now and I really don't care too much for organized religion. With that being said our child will be raised as Catholic. Will we go to church on Sundays? No.. Will we speak about religion at home? No... But we do want out child to receive their sacraments in order to make life easier for them down the road. That way they can be married in a church if they wish, or be someone's god parent.

I definitely want my children to grow up knowing God. My mum was a christian but she never forced God upon us. She was a prayer warrior and prayed that God would remember her children. She died when I was 18yrs, and a year later Jesus revealed himself to me. I saw a vision of Jesus before His crucifixion, carrying a heavy cross and walking on cobbled streets. Then He fell on one knee. I am 39yrs and knowing Jesus is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Now my prayer is that Jesus reveals himself to my children as He did to me, because when that happens, nothing and nobody on earth can convince you that He is not God. God bless!

This has been a tough subject for us. My husbands family is very religious. Me and my family are not. I have agreed to tell our child about God and only the parts that small children should hear. I will tell her about god, about angels, about heaven. What it is, that people go there. Even though I personally don't believe, I respect my husband and in laws beliefs. But I refuse to scare my child into religion. It will ultimately be her choice. Forcing someone to believe and scaring little children about going to hell seems cruel to me.

I'm letting my daughter decide what she wants to believe in. Me and my husband don't have any religious beliefs, and I don't want to push our beliefs on our little girl. So we just thought it would be better for her to decide on her own. Good luck to all you mommies (:
