Quoting awesomebrandi:" I plan on exposing and explaining multiple religions to her so she can be well educated. Lack of belief ... [snip!] ... belief doesn't mean lack of education (not saying you think it does) so I think it's important to arm her with the information."
Quoting Ellie.:" Neither me or DH are religious. I'm atheist and DH is agnostic. For those of you who are there as ... [snip!] ... about jesus and god from different sources. How do I go about addressing that with her? Do you explain different religions?"I'm not religious at all and neither is SO but our grandparents are and they talk to my son (4) about God sometimes (just the basics) and he comes to me and want me to explain things to him like who is GOD, Jesus and how they dies ect. I just tell him what I know (which isn't much let me tell ya lol) so I have a bible kids book I read to him which educates us both lol
Quoting Ellie.:" How do you plan on bringing it up though, and how do you explain that there are all these religions ... [snip!] ... all these religions and you dont buy into it? I guess that's where I'm lost. I'm all for educating her, I just dont know how"I just plan on explaining that it is part of life; that everybody has differences. For example, we're vegetarians. Some people choose to eat meat, some people choose to believe in God, and we do neither of those things. Their choices are okay, and our choices are okay. As far as all the reasons I don't believe, that will be whenever I feel she's old enough to take that information without it sounding like I'm being hateful toward other people's religion. I want to make sure she is respectful toward others beliefs.
Quoting Alicea Gatlin:" after reading through the replies i have a couple thoughts - one is that churches and religious organizations ... [snip!] ... grow up and make their own decisions - and if religion and god are as fake as santa then you have nothing to worry about...."That's actually a great comparison, and I don't believe in teaching a kid Santa is real either.
