Godless Parenting: What Do You Do To Bring Up #GodFreeKids?

I’m hosting a Google Hangout tomorrow morning (which is 8pm Sunday, USA East Coast time) – and I have a few questions all ready to go!

If you’d like to suggest more questions (or even suggest some answers that I can read out!) feel free to add them here in the comments or pop them on the Twitter hashtag #GodFreeKids.


1) What do you think are some of the biggest challenges that face atheist parents?

2) If you did question your faith as a child – what led you to question?

3) Richard Dawkins calls labelling a child with a religion a form of “mental child abuse” – do you think this is fair? Is labeling them “atheist” just the same?

4) Are atheist schools a good idea?

5) You’ve been approached by a young person who wants to try going to church or finding out about religion to make up their own mind – what do you do / suggest?

6) What is one piece of advice you’d give for atheist parents?
