We don't necessarily set out to "teach diversity," but kids can see naturally differences in people's lifestyles and ideas.
That makes sense, so ultimately if your dd, lets say, decided she wanted to be a minister in the church when she grew up, you'd be all for that, right?

I'm not sure what you mean by "all for that," but I would respect her choice even if I didn't agree with it.
