Cutting straight to the point, two topics with similar foundations; First, do you think parents should teach their children on everything from Alcohol, smoking, weed, etc?
Personally, I think once at the right age (13-14), I'll let the kids try weed for the first time, light blonde weed doesn't make anyone high and it's calming to smoke; And it's better that they first learn about it and how to smoke responsibly from me rather than from some other kid in school or online or wherever.
The same goes for smoking and alcohol; When it comes to Alcohol, Lina's family usually start letting kids taste wine (Sweet wine) and start getting used to it around 8 or 9 years old, this way there can be full parents' presence to ensure safety.
What're your opinion on the matter? Both in regards to which practices should parents teach their children and at what age.
On the other hand, the topic of ideology, religion, beliefs, etc.
This is where we disagree; In one hand, I'm more of the view that kids should be taught to think critically and adopt basic values, but not be exposed to any type of religious or ideological items until they're of sound mind. On the other hand, Lina is of the view that kids should learn to think critically and adopt various basic values, but they should also be integrated into the eastern orthodoxy from a young age.
Now, to be fair, though whatever middle point we reach is our concern and is not tied to anything here, the topic in general of what parents should teach their children and at what age is a good one to discuss.
I know it's poorly written, just focus on the main point.
