Hi everyone! New member here. 😊 I’m married and have one 3yo and baby on-the-way. I have two questions: What do you all do to build a sense of community for your family? What does that “community” look like? One of the great things ...

When a parent feels the urge to shout or hit.......the only assumption made by liberals, is, and true most of the time.....that those parents lack awareness. I feel there r 2 aspects to it. Either or both cud be responsible. 1. Lack of awareness 2....

I was proud of my 12 yo daughter. She was at school with her friends and I overhead her saying "I am an Atheist". Wish I could have had the courage to do that at 12!

I have always encouraged my children to be independent and stubborn. In stubbornness, comes determination. In independence, comes wisdom. With that said, with five kids, comes a worried mom. "be free to fly, but I will be watching"

Any suggestions on good books for kids around the topics of secular humanism or morality without a god? Certainly I will teach them as best I can my thoughts on the subject. But I always like having another source for them to turn to. Plus, I ...

I'm fairly new to this site and haven't searched through all the old posts yet. This is a topic that I imagine has already been discussed ad nauseum, but I haven't seen it so I want to throw it out there. Are there any atheist/agnostics out there ...

Being a Mom means being constantly torn between loving someone and wanting to strangle them.

Today I had someone tell me, " if you don't spank your kids they'll grow up to be brats". I tried to explain to him that statistically speaking, spanking makes them more likely to grow up with problems. He seemed unwilling or unable to understand. ...

A very sad post on the main page got me thinking about bullying and the effects it has on our kids. How do you handle your kids being bullied or your kids bullying others? Bullying is an epidemic at our local elementary. The staff seems to treat it ...

Not having any kids on my own yet, but definitely want to at some point. I have been raised non-religious (despite that my mother turned religious recently) and as it goes for me - so will be my children. Will seek to educate them since early age to ...

I have a daughter 10 and son 11. My ex is Catholic. She doesn't seem to be too indoctrinating, although there are bloodied crucifixes hanging all over her house. I'm not sure why she hasn't taken them to church hardly at all. Anyway, I've ...

I'm feeling a bit guilty about not doing much with this group yet so here's an "introductory post" You hear the phrase "it takes a village to raise a child" a LOT as a parent. What do you do when you don't have the crutch of a religious ...

Do parent teacher their kids to be atheist? I never did. I just tell them that I am an atheist but I don't care what they believe. I'll take them to a church if they want. I wanted them to explore the world and figure it out for themselves. I figure ...
