Seeking to understand...

I was reading a blog today and there was a post about what to teach kids about religion. There were many comments about not wanting to "force" religion on kids and letting them wait till they are older to pick a religion. I just don't get it....I pick all sorts of things for Asher already and he's only 12 weeks old. We'll have lots of values and beliefs that we'll teach him. They are in line with our faith but things we'd teach him regardless. Why is it that its okay to teach kids about tolerance, grace, respect, honesty, etc and "force" them to believe those things are right and important but not okay to teach him about God?
