Godless Parenting

A session at FtBConscience 2

Saturday 1st February, 2014

11:00am to 12:00pm

Raising healthy, well-adjusted children is difficult in any culture, but bringing up young freethinkers in a society dominated by religious beliefs offers new parents a distinct set of challenges. From teaching young kids morality and ethics without God, to dealing with potentially hostile religious family members and neighbors, to teaching kids to stand up for unpopular opinions, we'll discuss approaches that will help secular parents cope with their situation and raise great kids.
