Forcing kids to go to the church


While I´m all for leaving decisions to children gradually, fitting to their age, I don´t really understand the thinking of the age of reason as something similar to care completely self-responsible for their religious education.
Don´t you think that there´s a differnece between those two? I mean, 7 is really an age when adults should force certein things on their children, IMHO.


Basically, there are rules for living under my roof, one of which is weekly mass attendance. And, living under my roof includes college aged children who come home on break and/or are monetarily dependent upon me for their continued existence :wink:
