Raising Free Thinkers

RAISING FREETHINKERS is the practical companion to Parenting Beyond Belief: On Raising Ethical, Caring Kids Without Religion, a ground breaking collection of essays offering secular parents advice about raising caring and freethinking children, edited by Dale McGowan.
A practical, hands-on guide for raising independent, caring kids without religion.
Praised by Newsweek as “a compelling read” and Library Journal as “accessible and down-to-earth,” Dale McGowan’s Parenting Beyond Belief offered freethinking parents everywhere a compassionate introduction to raising caring, ethical children without religious guidance. Now, for the more than 40 million people in the United States who identify themselves as nonreligious, Raising Freethinkers offers solutions to the unique challenges secular parents face and provides specific answers to common questions, as well as over 100 activities for both parents and their children. This book covers every important topic nonreligious parents need to know to help their children with their own moral and intellectual development, including advice on religious-extended-family issues, death and life, secular celebrations, wondering and questioning, and more.

Complete with reviews of books, DVDs, curricula, educational toys, and online resources relevant to each chapter topic, Raising Freethinkers helps parents raise their children with confidence.
This book includes a wealth of information. It offers an invaluable list of resources and suggestions for parents that are struggling with raising their children as freethinkers. I really appreciate the activities included in the book, it makes it easier for the children to understand what you are teaching them when an activity is involved! The book offers insightful ways to discuss the hard topics that all children ask questions about. This handy book is arranged and sorted so that is very user friendly and easy to find the topics that you are looking for.

This is a very interesting read that we recommend!
