Religion and Kids

Did a Child Put the Fear of God in You?

While I wasn't the daughter of a preacher man, my parents did make us go to church on Sundays. Like many kids, I dreaded it but started to appreciate the ritual and my Sunday school friends as I aged. Once in college, my trips to chapel became few and far between.

Perhaps it was being in awe of my newborn that had me praising and thanking God on an hourly basis. Or the need to explain Christmas on a noncommercial level to my 2-year-old that had me breathing air back into my old biblical ways. Regardless of which God people worship, I have found a similar trend amongst many of my parent friends. Has religion played a larger role in your life since having children?
