"Parenting Beyond Belief, compiled by McGowan, was a great read, with many different points of view on how to deal with a number of situations like the death of a loved one, the pledge in school, the boy scouts, and explaining to your child why all…"
"Great book! I also purchased the book for my six year old boy and the audio, so he can follow along. It’s such a pleasant listen, Richard and his wife did an excellent job. I do agree that it might be more suitable for older children."
"One additional book:
The Magic of reality by RIchard Dawkins. I bought it for my 6 year old and it is still a bit advanced, I would imagine it would work really well for a 9 or 10 year old.
I really enjoyed reading it too!"
Like most children I was quite inquisitive very early on. The topic of religion and god came up a lot with my grandmothers who were both highly religious. You could imagine what I was up against, plus we lived in Spain with a high catholic population. Luckily for me I never converted, but it’s been a tough battle.
I now see myself in my son’s eyes, and love this stage of curiosity. My youngest boy loves dinosaurs, science, space, and is very inquisitive. I simply want to make sure that I prepare him with the evidence and scientific resources, but not indoctrinate him. I’m an atheist, but I honestly feel that people respond a lot better to a secular humanist label, especially when given the opportunity to explain your views.
Why are you here?
