I don't know where this definition is from, but it's wrong. Well being does not necessarily require religion.
If a child wishes to reject the religion, then fine. I am all for that. He or she has that right. But don't tell me that a parent cannot expose a child to a religion he or she wishes to. I would go as far as saying that if a parent cannot choose their kids religion, that is not a free and democratic society. That undermines the Constitutional Guarantee of "Freedom of expression".

The definition is from the Supreme Court, Family Court and the United Nations which has been accepted in countries such as UK, NZ, AUS, and Canada.
