We like to go to church every Sunday (if we're not out of town or working). Well, everyone is expected to get up every Sunday and get going except for my stepson (age 14). He doesn't like church so he doesn't have to go. My daugher is 8 and whines sometimes but she is used to it now and gets up and going.
Is it me being petty? I just feel if we are going to claim that God is important to us- it should be important enough to make sure our whole family goes. I have a hard time with this because it's one of several expectations that he is excempt from. We had an argument over it, stepson heard and told my husband he is asking his mom to get him out of here asap. I have an issue with my husbands expectations and his applications of it, not with my stepson but that is the way it gets interpreted.
