My super smart 8 year old is the only child I know that will pitch a fit if she can't go to church. One of her darling friends' family goes to church so Sara (my daughter) wanted to go with her one day. I am very anti-religion and anti-christian, however, I am not righteous and don't mind her learning all she can about the world. Yet, she now has been going religiously, hee hee, for several months and it's starting to bother me. I do not believe in the religion and I'm uncomfortable with the teachings. But, I figure, can it harm her? She will be capable of deciding on her own beliefs as she gets older. I just am curious to know...what does anyone of you think? Should I not let her go? For instance, if a family was Christian and their child's dear friend was Tao and their child accompanied her friend to medidations, would you allow it if it went against your beliefs? When do I let her decide on her own and when do I step in as a parent and raise her according to my beliefs?
