“What is religion?” from the supposed perspective of children

The video below purports to show some kids talking about what is religion? Notice however that the word in Hindu is used “dharm” which itself has different connotations from religion. As a result, rather than “What is religion?” as answered from children, it is more likely that this videos is the perspective of a person who’s editing, chopping and representing the voices of children to project something. Further, the video-maker is asking questions as if they make sense, and if the children are confused or diverse in their answers, the meaning that is derived is that religion is confusing, rather than the questions themselves. Similarly, to what extent are children repeating popular culture, and/or the parent’s own beliefs (rather than standing in contrast to their parent’s beliefs) is not addressed.
