Children should be able to make their own educated decisions regarding which religion they choose to follow, we call for a variety of religion to be taught so these children can choose their religion themselves rather than being pushed by their parents into a certain direction.
Many children grow up in forceful religious households, when they grow up and start to become educated on the topic, they suddenly feel extreme self-confliction. From birth, they have been told that there are such things as God, heaven, the afterlife and sometimes even hell. When these children grow up, they learn more about life, about science, about existence and start to feel like they are either following the wrong religion, or that they are unfaithful to their God or higher spirit. This extremely awkward position has caused depression, self harm, and even suicide. These children had the right to know about all of these religions and atheism at a young age, rather than being blinded by their parents devotion to a higher power.

You should only be the one religion you believe in. Kids should not be allowed to pick what religion they want to be. if we did let them have their decision then they would think church is boring and won't go again. Then when they are adults they will realize how much god done for us and so, at least we can give god an hour of our time. A big reason they should not learn many religions is they will be learning religions they might believe in. Then it would be boring for the children but if we had the religion they believe in they would be more inspired to learning. Do you want your children enjoying learning about religious rights? If you did not you would just be taking that all away from them.

They push them in one direction so they can learn more about the religeon.If the child made a decision as and then in adult hood their is a good chance they will regret it the rest of their lives.So when the are adults they can study the religeon more and know more about so they won't have any doubts about their choice.

Wow, I've never related to something as much as I am this. Personally, I agree that schools should expand their religious teachings, every child should have a choice and the parents have no right to force them into one direction for the comfort of their own well-being.
