Do you raise your kids pagan, something else, or nothing?

Since my fiance and I are both pagan, we hope to raise him in that respect, and with and open mind towards beliefs other than ours. If he chooses to follow another path, that's fine with us. I was forced to go to church as a child and I think that had a lot to do with me exploring other beliefs. I found solace in the idea that I didn't have to be afraid of the people I worshipped if I didn't want to, and I could pretty much mold it to suit me. If Raven takes a shine to paganism or Wicca, more power to him. If not, that's fine too. He's watched over by the goddess either way.

I raise my children with an understanding of all religions that I know of. I let them know that I will understand if they choose a path that isn't the same as mine. I involve my children in all of our Sabbats until they choose to not participate anymore, which has been the case with my 16 year old as of late and my 14 year old chose a different path at age 6. My 6 year old will tell anyone that asks that he is Pagan and Proud though...lol.
