Teaching Children Religion
There was a study done about what makes kids adopt their parent's religion when they were older. The main determining factor was the feelings they had as they learned about their religion. And surprisingly, the content of what they learned as they grew up had nothing to do with their decision. Children who had good feelings were more likely to stay in their parent's religion, while children who were made to feel bad or guilty would not stay.
This is extremely enlightening, and makes me stop myself when we are late for church and I want to grump at everybody who is making us late every week! So teach them with love, and you'll have a better chance at success!
