If you actually believe Christianity is true, shouldn't you feel it's your duty to make sure your children accept christ?

If you truthfully believe then you do not have a full understanding of what facts are. We all know there are parts of the bible that may be great moral tales, but other than that there is not much else by the way of facts.

christianity isnt forced into anyone. in the long run you would be extremely appretiative of your christian parents. they help you into it for a reason, and being a christian gives you an edge over anyone whose not (not to be rude). If it seems your friend or some1 you know is forcing you to christianity, they are likely very unexperienced to evangelism or have such deep feelings for you and can stand to see you in pain for all of eternity that their words come across rushed and commanding

I was "forced" to be baptized. When you're not even 1 year old... your judgment isn't really developed.
I know that there are about 2-3 things you have to do when you're young, but I don't know how you call that in english.
I was "forced" again to do the first one by my mom. She comes from a small town where when you're not catholic and not going to church, there's rumors and stuff about you, so it's "normal" to her to be catholic. My dad doesn't give a damn.. he believe a bit but doesn't practice.
I decided to be Atheist when I refused that 2nd thing you have to do. My brother succeeded to get out of the religion by writing a rude letter. I didn't succed... I'll be more rude next time.

if you were one, you weren't forced. you didn't have a choice, but you weren't forced. as for religion, you have a very limited view of that religion, I assume a Liturgical denomination like RCC. as for being successful - that is another issue, nobody can force you to believe (or not).

at 10 years of age, you know merely nothing about living and understanding.

maybe not, but they might know something about the difference between right and wrong, moral and immoral.
