  2. Its a great article and great reasons. Its so true that its better for children to do things because they’re the right thing to do not because they are forced to by an outside agent.

    I allowed my children to have their own choices. I had been agnostic for many years, and my ex-wife was pagan. My son eventually decided to go to Sunday School and see what it was like. After he had been going for a year, he decided he wanted to be Christened. As it was his choice, we told him that he had to decide who his Godparents were as well. My daughter is still unsure and probably will be for a long time
