Since when did 'house rules' include religious indoctrination of children and the hijacking of a parents rights?

In my house, you live by my rules and if you don't like my rules and abide by them,there's
the door plain and simple.


If you were my relative crashing on my couch, would my Wiccan husband have the right to attempt to convert your children? As a, you know, trade-off for living by my rules?

No?

Then stop being a hypocrite. the OP is the parent, and the parent is who decides these things, not the temporary landlord.

Bottom line...My house and my rules!


yeah. in the end you do have the right to do what you want in your house.
having said that.
major dick move getting all preachy with the kid(s) like that.

seems like a strange condition.
"you can stay with me if you help pay bills, buy food, and let me indoctrinate your kids.

i would just tell the kid to ignore all that #. just something you have to deal with at the moment.

If you feel that strongly against the religious beliefs of a relative you are
using to save money for you a home...Do yourself a favor and get out and
stop whining.

How typically Christian of you to say. Lets hope you never need help, and find yourself in a position that compromises your beliefs.

So what does anything you've said have to do with the thread topic?

You have house rules? great....

I couldn't do anything against it because it would conflict with the right to freedom of speech especially in one's own house. But if I were an owner and let someone stay I would be considerate and keep to myself even if I believe. If you can just keep silent about it until you move out and when she visits you won't have any problems.

Maybe you could argue it isn't a womans place to preach and let her invite a pastor instead, you can remind her of that each remark (without letting your kids find out ofcourse), it is quite common in many religions so don't feel bad. If she would agree and even find a pastor you might have a couple of hours of indoctrination a month instead of every possible moment from a relative and not some stranger they'll probably never see again. Anyway I wouldn't worry, it's too short a time to really indoctrinate your kids will just grow over it once in another setting without the dependancy and family factors.
