I'm the same. I wan't my kids to find their own way, based on what they believe.

I don't go to church because I was raised in a very strict Catholic household, plus 12 years of strict all girls Catholic school run by nuns and came to have a complete disrespect for it. I don't want my children to have a complete level of disrespect and bitterness towards a spiritual belief the way I do.

That said, I do identify as Pagan and raise my children as such, but they are welcome to take and leave whatever parts of it they choose, I don't force them.

I also don't believe in teaching spirituality, I think that has to come within, so even if we did go to an organised church, I wouldn't want my children to go to any of the children's groups.
