Ritual and Tradition
I live a life without ritual and with few traditions. I’m starting to believe this is unhealthy from my parental viewpoint as children obviously respond to ritual as evidenced in protestant confirmations and Catholic catechisms. What I want to instill in them is a sense that ritual is virtually meaningless and traditions are semi-sacred. I don’t want them to hit 15 and start thinking they missed out on all the religious rituals and fall hard in one of those directions.
