I suppose I need to elaborate more. I in no way meant to suggest that something like infant baptism should not take place. After all - if the child grows up to believe in the Church, then they will be glad they were baptized. If a child grows up to disbelieve in the Church, then they shouldn't care as all they could possibly believe it was was a public bath (a very quick one at that). I also think that if a parent shows their faith, lives their faith, from the time their child is born (that is, being an example of Christianity for their child, from their child's birth), then there will be less chance of the child disbelieving later on. Little children like to be like their parents. If a parent goes to church every week, the child will want to. If the parent allows their child to see them praying regularly, their child will want to pray regularly. If the child grows up going to church because they want to, and praying because they want to, then they are much more likely to stay in the Church (or perhaps to stray for a few years and then come back).
Ultimately, I think that force is simply going to push a child away from what you are forcing them towards - just as someone trying to force you to do something is likely to drive you further from it.
