I turned on the Western Republican Debate tonight and Anthony was asking me about it. The conversation started out talking politics but then the candidates turned to the subject of religion in office and Anthony asked if one of the people was a Jehovah’s Witness. I told him, “no…where did you hear about them?” It turns out that one of his classmates is a Jehovah’s Witness and he was wondering about it because his friend was not going along on their class field trip to the pumpkin patch.
He started asking about what they believe, if they believe in God and why they don’t celebrate Halloween.
I really did not think twice about turning to Google to answer his questions.
We spent a good amount of time looking up facts about what they believe and discussing the differences between their religion and ours.
So, my question to you, is: Would you have looked up information on another Religion for your child? Do you only teach your own beliefs without exposing your children to other ways of thinking? Why or why not?
Just my random wondering for the day.
