Parenting without God

After growing up in a Christian home and becoming an atheist as a young adult, figuring out how to raise my children without God has been a bit of a challenge. My children are still young, so this is something I’m still learning. As my children grow, I plan to share my adventures in parenting without God here on my blog.

One conclusion I have come to is that I have to let my children choose their own beliefs. I can teach them how to be critical thinkers and let them know what I believe, but ultimately, they have to come to their own truth. My goal is to raise critical thinkers in a multicultural world, a task that is both a challenge and an adventure.
