r u sure that u'll have no problem if ur child (or member of ur family) becomes a christian/muslim?
 
but there r many pseudo religions as well like satan worshipping...so u cant just throw ur child into those in the name of freedom of choosing religion!


actually u r right!!!!!!
 its very difficult to let your children to follow some other religion. but its very rare when people change their religion. it is something which u learn and follow from ur childhood. the only reason i can think of would me if u marry a person from another religion. in which case parents do agree for their childrens happiness.
hey this is not always correct. my parents let my brother to follow christianity and have no big issues about it.

 Religion is never forced on children's . It becomes a part and parcel of life as one gets born in a home and get use to what he learns with the people he is living and also gets the name and identity with the religion !!!


     Religion gives the identity to the people , but it depends upon the belief and non-belief , as a man without religion is incomplete and his life has no base. Whether the person is Hindu ,Muslim or Christian  the biggest thing is respect all the religion and shouldn't hurt the sentiments of the believers  .

          Because  in life religion plays important role because it connects the god the maker of this world...  
there are also some people who convert their religion from one to another.

yes it is acceptable for parents to teach their children their religion and its up to them to follow that or not. at least when they a young they are taught their own religion. if they feel they are not able to follow that religion then they are free to change it after growing up
 
Right.. it should be physically enforced till they are 18 and then force it through emotional blackmail... then on...indian women are aces at that....


don u physically force ur children to pray? or ur parents did that? had it been possible to stop Indian men through emotional blackmail then we wont have any wars problems only in india.


dear our religion says in ramayan n mahabharat wars were fought due to women.Wink

*king*
 
I think in this topic we are not discussing about ramayan or mahabharata or wars which were fought due to women, where did a mention of a woman come from in this topic of are we forcing religion upon our children, and are not talking about the epics. !! Confused !!
the epic of mahabharat and ramayan are very much related to religion.

Of course, everything boils down to personal beliefs and personal choices at the end of the day --- even the fact whether one will "force" their kids into adopting their religion or not if force, indeed, is required later down the road. 

For me, there is no force what so ever in most cases.  I agree with WA here.  A child learns and picks lot of things from her parents - like culture, values, morals, ethics etc.  Religion happens to be one such facet of life.  Other facets may evolve over a period of time and may end up being different than what they were exposed to during their childhood but religion usually stays same for desi kids and that's because, imo,  pretty much most religions teach the same thing.  What's the point in changing it then?  That along with religion forming a part of our identity as well irrespective of the whether one practices it actively or not.



I'm sorry, can someone read the purple for me and let me know if I'm reading it right. LOL

Hmmph

I don't see a relation between religion and view of life !

Ok , anyways,
suppose we give the right to children to chose their own religion,
now how should they decide ?
Read books of all the religions , or what ?

What i want to say is , that it is not like forcing religion,
it seems to be the only practical way !
