so my oldest dd (shes 10 now) got invited to one of her best friends baptisms....its happening on the 16th so i got a while to decide...but what would yall do? let her go? im leaning towards letting her go and it would just be me and her to go...i really dont want helena or elyse to go to something like that yet...cause even elyse at 8 is still very impressionable...raianna i believe she is old enough to go and see this...i think it would also be good for her to see what they do in other religions....
I agree. Sheltering her will never allow her to see what else is out there. I feel that I was brought up that way and wish my parents would have let me go to other religious things.
Let her go with you, and let her view it with an open mind. And if she asks questions, you are there to answer.

There is a lot of research that says Athesists and Agnostics are more intelligent and informed than those of other religions. I believe this is because we have been exposed to other beliefs and have the ability to respect them.
If you don't let her go, you are sending the same message that many Christians and other religions send their kids. That all religions, except your own, are bad and should be avoided.
This is a wonderful educational opportunity for your daughter. She will gain some knowledge about organized religion, but more importantly she will learn to treat those different from her with respect.
well after talking to her about what it was and what it stood for (and actually trying to talk her INTO going) she refused LOL she was adamant on not going...so i wasn't going to force her LOL so thats the update on that LOL
