Amber sent this question about teaching kids about religion — what do you do when you want your kids to know about as many religions as possible but you aren’t well-versed in them?
My husband and I are on opposite sides of the fence as far as religion goes. I consider myself a very opened-minded Christian and he leans more towards atheism. We both agree that we want our children to be able to choose what works for them as far as religion and beliefs go. We want to teach them about the different beliefs… but we don’t really know where to start as we are not well-versed in other religions.
Does anyone out there know of any books we can read (especially children’s books, as our children are one and three right now)? We’d also love to get as much advice as possible. This has been an ongoing argument with my husband and I, and we are trying to find a compromise and not inflict our children with our own tainted beliefs.
How have you guys introduced your children to various religious and spiritual thoughts and beliefs?
