I think perspective is the best defence against indoctrination.

Yeah, well, that's just your perspective. Where's your evidence?

I enjoyed saying that. Like I was 6 again. Big Grin

My grandson is a happy child. He did tell me of someone who said some nasty things to him. He understood when told that there are some people in this world that like saying nasty things and that I was happy that he wasn't like that.

Teach him to respond with Maori religion. Or get earmuffs to accompany your son to school so that the bullies know what's gonna happen to them if they keep this shit up.

RE: Burning in hell at primary school
At age 6, I don't think that any mature reasoned arguments are going to help as (1) he'd only be parroting them without the understanding and (2) the classmates wouldn't understand the response either.

If someone said this to my kids who are older but still barely able to do algebra let alone evaluate for themselves the existence of a deity I would tell my child to ignore it best they can. Every person needs to make up their own mind and shouldn't be influenced by others. These are hard concepts for someone at age 6.

How many students are saying this to your son? Is it a bunch or perhaps it is just one vocal boy or girl who is undergoing prescription strength brainwashing?

RE: Burning in hell at primary school
Thanks for your help, I agree I don't wNt to tell him what to say because that makes me no better than a brainwasher. It will also be more powerful if he discovers his own truth.

As far as I can tell (6 year olds are not a reliable source) it is only one, but it is his best friend. I think both my son and his friend are distressed about it. It is a life lesson, but it still breaks my heart.

hard life lessons for sure.
I had a good friend like that, except his parents did not serve the koolaid that strong. We made it to puberty before it got into the way.

Did they ask if hell looked like school, and had the demonic version of his peers in it yet? Tongue
