Until recently, I thought that we were bringing up our kids without religion. We don't go to a place of worship and we don't teach the concept of God by that or any other name. We also don't teach our children with religion.
For a while I wondered how to introduce these ideas to them since I felt they should understand that there are others who do believe in a higher power. I'd concluded that I want to buy a book on world religions and read it to them to explain what others believe.
So like I said, I was quite sure we were bringing our children up without religion.
A story I heard a few weeks ago changed that theory.
I was listening to NPR (National Public Radio), the show was This American Life with Ira Glass. Today's show topic was "Kid Logic." It was essentially "Kids Say the Darndest Things." Some of the stories were cute, but one was downright sobering.
