I live in TN, where most people believe in magic, fairytales, and superstition. Any kind of group kid activities in some way or another have religion in it. How do I allow my 6 and 14 yr olds participate in social activities with out god being present? Just now I had a friend (christian) and her daughter over for dinner. Their church is a block away so she stayed until it was time to go pray to the invisible. Well my 6 yr old wanted to go (because there isn't a whole lot to do around here), I told my friend that she could go as long as she was not made to pray. Well you can imagine how that conversation went. Anyway, what to do?
