My husband, son and I went out to eat dinner on Friday night and when the food arrived, my husband wanted my son to say grace and he wanted me to bow my head and along with it. I want to teach my son to be grateful for things, but somehow I don't feel right teaching him to thank a nonexistent supernatural being for food that his daddy and I worked hard for. My husband knows that I am an atheist and he's okay with it, but he holds on to his faith and wants to raise my son that way. We don't go to church so saying grace and prayers at bedtime is probably the extent of the religiosity my husband pushes on him. I think some parents (including my husband) believe that religion is the only way to teach morals and other fine character qualities.
