"I'm frustrated to see that your child was baptized without your permission. What I do to counter-act the indoctrination of my daughter (7) is to tell her the actualities of the religion in ways she understands them and discuss them with her.…"

"I'm sorry to hear that they would not respect your rights as your child's mother to wait for the baptism. But I think you're right that this is primarily about following tradition and that for your 8 year old, probably didn't…"

"So the baptism of my daughter happened last night. My ex and I had agreed to wait for a while, or at least so I thought. The day before Thanksgiving I got an invitation of her baptism. Everything had been prepared in secret. I tried everything I…"

Edward Casey replied to Liselotte's discussion Turning Eight maybe isn't so great!
"While I agree in principal, we all know that those Mormons who are fully indoctrinated would insist the tradition should be carried out, that when the child turns 8, they are, by God's decree, to be baptized. They cannot, or will not accept it…"

Dan replied to Liselotte's discussion Turning Eight maybe isn't so great!
"The purpose of baptism is so God can forgive your sins. Well at 8 I do not think she has any to be forgiven for. I do not know your belief system or relationship to your daughter. The parent that has custody usually makes the decision. As a non…"

"Hi Liselotte. Yes, that issue is a tough one. Perhaps it might be good to let your daughter make her own choice, and to be supportive of that choice. In a way you would be showing her that it is important for people to get to make their own…"
