I want to raise my kids pagan, open-minded, accepting, and caring.
The exact opposite of my upbringing.
I have worked hard on not threatening them with spankings, because I would never do that to my kids after what happened to me, and I never followed up on them anyways.
I also don't want my kids to be made fun of for voicing the beliefs I hope to instill, since my town is overwhelmingly Catholic. I also don't want my kids to swing the other way and become uppity brutes who fester ill will toward kids who don't believe the way we do. I was guilty of this as a kid.
Has anyone else worried about this? How did you overcome the fear of not knowing how it all works out in the future?
