I think you're probably right. Family is a chain of childhood education passed on from parent to child. But the parent can framd their experience in a greater context and can come up with new parenting theories. It only takes one generation to break that chain. My family line hasn't been religious for generations for that reason.

but is it for the parents to blame for raising them such a way.... or is it something we have to track back to pre existence.
everyone has had a different child hood but it is what happened as a child that determines your future.... but it's ineffable we were raised to believe in such a thing for example religion it's not something you just change it takes almost a few months with looking at reason to see if what has changed your belief. I say no, it's not wrong, it's your child hood that changes a human

I think it's a natural function of the human mind. It's hard for me to say any natural function is wrong, with only a few exceptions like serial killer tendancies. But this is why early childhood religious indoctrination is a kind of mental abuse. You are setting into stone (or perhaps more accurately, programming into the child's firmware) a strong tendancy to falacious reasoning to justify the belief such that they may even become a physicist and, upon trying to understand pre-big-bang singularities determine there must be a trinity of singularities. There is no free will. We are what we are and it determines what we do.
