Re: Legal Rights - my son's religion
It is your son's decision. Talk to him, see if he really wants to do it or not. If not, then he doesn't have to. Religious issues are included in the parenting plan. They are in mine. If your son doesn't want to even go with them to church, he doesn't have to. Although parents want children to be the same religion they are, sometimes it doesn't work out that way, but you don't want your son to feel like he is being forced. Who has custody? Does he even have to attend church with his dad, if he doesn't want to? I think that if your son didn't want to be baptized in your ex's wife's religion, then he has that choice. It will be hard for him to stand up and say that, but he has every human right. Same goes with your religion. Just help him make the right decision for HIM, and make sure that he is going to be okay when dealing with disappointing you, his dad, or someone else. That is all we can do for our children. Even if we don't agree, we are responsible for giving them the tools to make decisions and stick by them.
