No need for apologies
You were giving your view and it brought up a point w/in your point that should be brought out.
We all have our ideals for raising children and they all differ. Everyone's ideals should not be forced onto all the children... only what the
parents of the children deem fit.
There are Christians who will say I am in the wrong for not having my children in church every sunday. They may not be wrong for taking THEIR
children, but seeing that I alone am responsible for the upbringing, they are in the wrong for trying to impose guilt on me for not bringing my
children up with their ideals.
Same thing could be said about any religion, political view, etc.
I don't shelter my kids from the world, but I filter it to fit what they have learned or haven't learned yet as far as the foundation I am trying to
start them off with.
People would think I was insane if I had a vision of a big beautiful house and just immediately began building rooms without laying a foundation
first. The foundation is a laying out of what is right and wrong and what is right and wrong for us as an individual may not be what is right and
wrong for someone else... finding out what is in you and what values you have as an individual is a learned process and if I throw them out into a
world created with adult concepts and ideas before they have learned to navigate it with their own eyes and heart, then I have done MY children an
injustice and set them up for the trap that those who want to control them have laid out.
