I am Christian (though admittedly, liberally so) while my husband is Agnostic. He agrees that it is appropriate for our child to receive some education in my faith, but we have been unable to find a Church community in our area that we both feel comfortable regularly taking our child to as most of them would not teach tolerance of, and respect for my husband's beliefs (we've tried, we are in a VERY conservative area).
For this reason, we are not attending church regularly so teaching my daughter about my faith and beliefs is largely up to me. I want her to know about Christianity (as well as other faiths for that matter) and to teach her how to think about faith, belief and values that allows her room for some choice when she is older. Of course I hope my example will also have a positive impact, but I do specifically feel she needs to know that stories and traditions that make up part of her heritage (and a large part of our culture) in both an academic (most Sunday School Curricula don't seem all that "academic" to me) and "fun" way.
What kinds of things should I consider when choosing books, videos, games and activities to use with her while teaching her values both my husband and I share as well as the more faith-based values only I hold to?
Update Due to "questions" asked about why teach it then? I thought this further clarification was needed. I will reiterate the wish for an "academic" look. This isn't about discovering faith, it is about having a relevant literary background. I believe knowledge is key in understanding. This relates to building empathy toward others and combating prejudice based in ignorance. Knowledge can be used to defeat fear mongering against "the other" whoever that "other" may be. I believe in also exposing her to other world religions, but I believe in starting with what you know best (as a teacher). She has even joined in with friends for Hanukkah this year, and knows a little about Divaali. We both have learning to do in regard to non-Christian religions. As a scientist, (Botany) I believe in evolution and can also explain this standpoint easily. I want her to know The Bible well - whatever her choice about it. Eventually, I intend to have her read at least some of the Koran as well. When you know some of the basics, it is a lot more difficult to be overly judgmental about those that believe differently than you and a lot easier to find the commonalities as well as easier to make an informed decision about what you accept yourself.
Finally, she is moving into a study of Medieval Europe. She is a huge History connoisseur and just can't get enough. At six, she can rattle off names of Greek Philosophers, Roman Emperors, describe Myths from both traditions as well as from Babylon, Egypt, China and Japan. She can't necessarily remember every date and every name, but she can offer a surprising amount of information from any Human History between the first farmers to the Fall of Rome. Ancient India and China have not been forgotten in our studies either. To fully grasp the upcoming period in her history studies, she has to have some understanding of the basics of Christianity and its story and will also need to gain some understanding of Early Islam as well. "Skipping it" until she is an adult is not realistic even if I wasn't Christian myself if she is to be well-informed in the subject she loves most, History.
