On Raising Ethical, Caring Kids Without Religion
A US publication that may also be worth considering for Humanist parents everywhere as a useful resource:
Why am I here? What happens after we die? These are some of the hardest questions a child can ask-and even harder for parents to answer, especially if you’ve chosen to raise your child without religion.
Parenting Beyond Belief includes perspectives from educators and psychologists, as well as wisdom from everyday parents, and offers insights and advice on a range of topics including:
- Instilling values
- Finding meaning and purpose
- Navigating holidays
- Coping with loss
- Finding community without religion and more
The second edition of this secular parenting resource includes reflections from celebrated freethinkers such as Richard Dawkins and Julia Sweeney, and adds new voices including journalist Wendy Thomas Russell, essayist Katherine Ozment, sociologist Phil Zuckerman, and many others.
Wise, entertaining, and deeply supportive, the book will empower parents in their quest to raise ethical, compassionate, and open-minded children-without religion.
