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! Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group

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" Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group

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 ... Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group

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... Posted in Cool Kids.

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. ... Posted in Cool Kids.

Had anything been open,you can bet your butt I'd have been going in for a coffee. People in general and ... Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group

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 ... Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group

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 ... Posted in Cool Kids.

Hi everyone! It looks as though I'm going to be doing quite a bit of childcare here soon. The children coming to spend time with me aren't from particularly religious households (thank goodness) but if the topic of religion does come up,what is your ... Posted in Cool Kids.

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 ... Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group

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 ... Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group

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 ... Posted in Cool Kids. Raising children Agnostic/Atheist group
