Tonight my six year old told me that if I met the Buddha on the road I should kill him, because I am the only true Buddha. We hired a sweet, albeit crunch nanny from SF to come down to San Diego to work with our family. I love her spirit and her personality and many of her ideas, but I do not, not want her to instruct my children spiritually. I have tried to impress this upon her but she does not seem to get it. I don't want my kids collecting Buddhas, rubbing tummies or quoting Buddhists.
We are Catholics. My child will start religious classes this Fall. I don't want the confusion.
