Comment: You are forcing one viewpoint

You are forcing one viewpoint

You are forcing one viewpoint over another onto your child. You are telling them that they should pray to one particular God and declare themselves one particular part of one particular religion, because you believe it to be true.

God may have made us, but it is only subjective on which God done so. Teaching your children, or anyone else for that matter, that this one particular God out of all the others is true and not allowing the child to examine all religious and non-religious viewpoints before coming to a decision themselves, is forcing an opinion on to them.

You don't force anything on to a child, you teach them what you know, where they can find out more and allow them to grow up figuring it out for themselves.
