Everyone has their own Path. You can teach your children about your religion, give them access to learn about other belief systems and in the end they will make the choice that will fit in their life. If you give them a good understanding of all religions it will save them from falling into cults.
I have one kid that turned Christian on me. He is happy so I am happy. I even went to church with him for his baptism and much to his surprise I behaved. He was really never raised with a particular religion. I didn't become Pagan until he was a teen and I would have never even thought about forcing it on him. I taught him about it along with other religions.
The only thing I forced my kids to do was read. I guided their reading but never actually picked books for them other than handing them a book saying this is cool check it out.
Many people who come to Paganism were forced into a belief system as children. Some have no idea about other religions and they are lost. I tell them to go and look into all religions and decide what makes the most sense to them. If they still want to become Pagan I am glad to help them out.
Religion is like a pair of shoes, it has to fit.
