Religious Upbringing

Parents take their children to church because they want their children to be blessed and to have some-one to turn to when they need to talk they can go to groups within the church and mix with people their own age.

They want their children to know right from wrong,they want them to understand what to do and they get guidance from their friends who dont go to church and dont know what they're going through because they havent shared the same experiences

Going  to church as a child can set you up for life because when you get married and you want to get married in a church you have to have been at that church for a certain amount of time or you could get refused by the priest.
