How important is religion in parenting?

How important is religion in parenting? Last night my husband and I we were up until late discussing religion matters regarding our daughter. When religion plays a big role in parenting it such a pain in the …… Married to a Muslim man and I was born a Christian but later changed to nothing. Definitely have good reasons.

What sparked the question of religion, you know in Muslim culture there are women who cover their faces. As I learn a little about the Quran each day I somehow feel that is oppressing women making men feel all superior above women and as a feminist that is a no, no in my book. I might be wrong, but as far as I understand I wouldn’t want my daughter to get involved with something that will teach her that men have power over women.

Found asking myself why religion plays a huge role in parenting. Is religion really necessary, especially religion that will inhabit a human being to enjoy life and all its possibilities.  Asked husband actually told him that our daughter should have the freedom to choose with path/religion she wants to follow when she is old enough. For now, we teach her what is right and wrong and let her experience life and everything in it.

Am I really just a bad parent? When I married my husband we never spoke about this and I never even thought about it. He knew where I stood when it comes to religion. Always say I don’t judge anyone who believes in God/Allah, but don’t know force your beliefs down my throat.

My daughter, she is a curious child and she is always interested in why in Christianity, they praise God the way they do and sing loudly and scream hallelujah while in Muslim they don’t. She also wanted to know why Hindus had so many gods and goddesses and the other day she wanted to know who is RA (The Egyptian God of Sun) I explain to her to the best of my abilities.

 

Am I being unreasonable to my husband about the religion matter? Have you encountered the same problem?

 

 

 

Another Interesting Taxi Conversation

interesting

Wow, today’s journey back home seemed so short because another interesting taxi conversation was sparked it started with this other gentle asking a question. Why is it alright for a street vendor to display his vegetables and fruits to attract customer, but we are disgusted when we see a prostitute showing a lot in public?
Street-Vendor-Vs

There were interesting answers some said that is just not right to display your private parts in public, I say there is no dignified way of advertised yourself as the lady of the night unless you have joined an escort which catered for those professional men or you are a bunny at the playboy mansion and the topic went on to why men prefer to buy prostitutes it is because a she or he is cheap and does not require them to call, spoil them they are easy going than wives or girlfriends at home.So, bottom line is maintaining a wife/girlfriend is more expensive that is why some men to go that other.

Another totally different conversation you know the one you should never talk about Religion yes, they did it, I chose to keep quiet because I know that this one will never end. This other lady who said that she has been speaking in tongues since she was sixteen years old and the other gentleman said that is hpvwash its at a Chinese gong to a Germany and start speaking in Chinese that is how this speaking in tongues thing started.September last year she had a stroke and she could not see and her pastor prayed for her and she is well known and she believes Jesus healed her, the taxi driver asked why do you believe in Jesus so much when Jesus was a made up character and ordinary man than God.

Everyone in the taxi was engaged including the taxi driver it was so loud that everyone was looking at us like we were crazy or something. How the religion/traditional believers topic ended, I don’t know because it was time for me to get off. I laughed and the stress of the day was relieved.
