Religious Differences

My ex-spouse and I are different religions and we each teach our children about our beliefs and practices. Isn't this confusing for our children?

Courts will often not give orders providing for a specific religion for a child. However, that does not mean that you should not address the issue. Your children will likely not be damaged by learning about two different religions, just as they won't be damaged by learning two different languages. Explain the differences between the two religions to your children and offer a safe environment in which they can talk to you about those differences and their individual preferences.
