Rigid, formal, structured religious teachings produce discipline and obedience, according to many who are strict followers of a religious faith. But often the children coming out of the strictest homes are the most angry and rebellious. Is religion the answer, or can it sometimes be the problem? Are our religious teachings ruining our children? What religious beliefs are healthy and what beliefs are harmful in the raising of children?
