Opening up to your parents can be a liberating life experience…but it can also be one of the hardest things you ever have to do. Today’s OPP is struggling with the decision of having the talk with her parents over religion. Mary, feels that she had a fall out with religion a while ago but since she had a kid, her parents want to have him baptized. She wants to tell her parents that she doesn’t want to raise her kids under the strict religious ways her parents did to her and believes that they will disown her with her decision.
Steve put in his 2cents of when he grew up his mom was very lax and never had any pressure of having religion in his life. Slacker believes that Mary should stop being afraid of her parents and put her foot down about her raising her child how she wants.
What advice do you have for her?
