    I would never presume to judge your parenting, far from it.  It seems you are very conscientious and are a caring parent.   I would never say you are raising your kids wrong,  mainly because I have no info on the subject and also because I don't have the answers.

    My different opinion was based solely on your diary and YOUR opinion of this nation, not how you raise your kids.  If I had to critique anything, I would just say let them make their own decisions on religion and this nation.   Yet, certainly a father has a right to teach his kids what he believes.

    Look, I will be honest here.  My view is that people should find their own happiness in this life.  If they find it in another country, then go for it.  I have lived abroad and traveled abroad a lot, those were some of my happiest times.  But don't forget that many traveled here out of a believed need, and they feel blessed for doing so.  We all have to follow our OWN path.  

    Also, and always, my respect for your service  to this country.
