Is it important to you what your children believe?

Alex is being raised Jewish, but will also be exposed to other religions. I will hope he chooses Judaism, but I will not force it on him.

I would like my children to be religious. But I know imposing isn't the way to do it. The best way is to let them live Judaism and see for themselves how beautiful it really is. It's the little things like saying together the Shema before going to bed or having special treats that you can only have on shabbath. I think those are the things that will make my children choose the path I prefer.
If they choose another path, though I'd be devastated, but they're my children and I'l love them no matter what.
