How are you raising your kids with regard to spirituality or religion? Is it different from or the same as how you were raised? Are you and your spouse on the same page? Please share the story of your spiritual journey and how it affects your child-raising.

[QUOTE=Tolerant Sis;420609]I am a recovering Catholic, who realized at 16 that I was no longer a believer.  When my son was born, a friend of ours who happened to be a Catholic priest christened him at Ocean Beach in San Francisco.  We had a beautiful beach-front service. 

Much later, I stood in as godmother when my sister-in-law's own sister couldn't make the christening, and heard his little seven-year-old voice piping up from the pews, "Dad, who's that guy on the cross?"

We decided that some kind of religious training was in order, not because we wanted to raise a believer, but because he would be living in the US, where 85% of the population claims to believe in Jesus.  So I went back to our priest friend (who knew the score), and he offered to teach Tim.  I started taking him to church every Sunday.  In short order, Tim underwent first communion, became an altar-boy, and soon after, started catechism classes. 

When he was 13, he was confirmed.

The next week, he told me, "Okay, mom, I get it.  I don't have to go back now."  Except for weddings, funerals, and baptisms (and the occasional Christmas Eve service when aging relatives are in town), he hasn't gone back.  He knows more about the history of religion and the Bible than many communicants, but he decided he has no use for it, either.[/QUOTE]
