Comment #372499 by RightWingAtheist,
I don't think delegating the conflict to the kids who are naturally unequipped to handle it improves the situation. Arguably extremely religious adults aren't either. Which is precisely why they make an effort at every opportunity to intrude with their irrationalism wherever reason is supposedly in charge - making sure that legislation is in place to make sure reason is not allowed to respond. By telling them their bullshit is nonsense for example.

I think when a severely home-indoctrinated child wastes everyone's time by doing as its parents have instructed, then the parents should be obligated to pay for that time and costs for everybody, and recompense the scared other child for the psychological harm done.
