This is just not right

It's bad enough that this parent is telling its child lies, but what is less obvious is that if the parent tells the child rubbish like this when it's in junior school, the child is quite likely to reject good solid science teaching in its teens, even when presented with unequivocal evidence.

As someone once said "Give me the child until he is seven, and I'll give you the man." ie get brainwashed early enough and you'll stay brainwashed.
