It will die all by itself when everyone loses interest in it.

Re: 6 year old says "bla bla bla" when daughter talks about God

I am catholic and not really active in the church as i think is just a multibillionare company, but I do believe in God and God only. I pray everynight with my kids, I pray for our family and other peoples health etc. Even my swiss non believer husband says now sometimes "thank God for this or that"
Said that is very posible my kids will face a similar situation outside home and it got me thinking and the only thing i came up with was to explain my kids that the way we feel in the family about God might not be the way other people feel and I chose to believe in God and some day it will be up to them in what to believe.
I know there is a battle between religions trying to prove which one is the "Real Deal" for me religion is to believe in a higher power and is what helps me be a better person, if my kids in the future feel more comfortable with another choise i will not be frustrated for not following my catholic steps.

Re: 6 year old says "bla bla bla" when daughter talks about God

People will accept your belief/religion if you don't push it on them.

The easiest way to get by without offending or being offended is to teach a child that there are many different religions and beliefs in the world, where there are no rights and no wrongs, just different perceptions.
Helping a kid to learn to quietly listen to other people's opinions or refusal of opinions prepares him/her for later on.

Responding blablabla to any statement made in all innocence seems to me to be rather rude...
But Sky, given the title, it is in context!

Re: 6 year old says "bla bla bla" when daughter talks about God

Of course, if it were my own child using this sort of wording, I would be quite concerned that they might use the same phraseology in another place, at another time, in other circumstances, with other subject matter, to another person. This might be their teacher at school, the postman, the caretaker of the block we live in, my neighbour, could even be ME. Perish the thought.

It's fun to be reading this thread while I am reading Mitch Albom's "Have a little faith". Very ecumenical.

Actually 'blablablablablablabla' is Hindi for 'I respect your religion, but I have my own and we have different beliefs that are no less valid in my eyes.'

good to know.

I'll say that to my Muslim Indian office colleague next time he tries to prosetylise me.

Please, the girl is six. She'll have enough opportunity to learn politics and diplomacy and cultural relativism and all the other polite ways of offending people as she grows older. Lets' be happy that she still is saying what she thinks in plain language.

Re: 6 year old says "bla bla bla" when daughter talks about God

I have read through all the views here and other threads only to wonder why Christianity and Jesus is the most lambasted of all religions in EF. This is my observation.

Because Christianity is the religion with which the overwhelming majority of posters have the most contact.
