Actually my kids go to a Christian school and they are not scared or traumatized. They are in a very loving environment. I dont really send them
there for the religious aspects as much as for the good care they get. Nobody is brain washing them. In fact, we discuss stuff at our house all the
time to show there are more than one way to look at the world. For instance their school beleives in creationism but I simply show them the other
view. When they get older they can decide. If they are going to be brainwashed somehow it seems better to let them get there brainwashed at their
school instead of at a public school.

I didn't mean normal Christian schools, I should have been more specific.
I went to a Christian school too, was raised Catholic, never regretted it.
What I meant were those bible camps, and Jesus camps. What have you
not, in the Bible belt of America. There's videos on youtube how children
are indoctrinated and brainwashed, being told Harry Potter is the devil
and other such destructive nonsense.
My mother taught me about spirituality, such as the afterlife, reincarnation,
the soul, and the existence of psychic abilities when I was about ten. I have
had a terribly hard and painful life, and that knowledge saved me from
suicide, saved me from ending up in a mental asylum.. and it took away my
fear of death.
Real spiritual knowledge, not New Age crap, is very important for any adult,
but especially for children. Because when they grow up with it, their faith
in these truths is very solid, and their lifestyle, free of fear to die, will very
drastically improve compared to other children.
Also, all children have spiritual experiences. They see spirits, they have out
of body experiences, they see angels. Many children have some form of
telepathic or psychic abilities as well. But ignorant parents ignore all this,
and tell their child it's all just dreams. Because of this, the child's brains
categorize these experiences as nonsense, and they lose their abilities. This
is a great loss of course, because if the child had been raised properly, in
knowledge of the spiritual truths, it would have kept its psychic abilities.
