Raising Freethinkers: A Practical Guide for Parenting Beyond Belief

Buy

“I raised my own freethinking sons not that long ago, and I had little choice but to do it without much practical support. This book is the best, most comprehensive com­pendium of secular parenting strategies and tips I can imagine. It shows how, without the aid of any supernatural overseer, you can raise kids who are moral, compassionate, curious,

and fully aware of the nuances of a truly civilized human society.”            — Susan K. Perry, Ph.D.,   social psychologist and author of Playing Smart and Loving in Flow, creativity blogger       for PsychologyToday.com, and advice columnist for Netscape.com and TheCradle.com

  As a freethinking parent, you face a unique set of challenges in raising children with­out religious guidance. How will you help them understand issues like death, sexu­ality, morality, and religion itself, all while encouraging them to think for themselves?

Dale McGowan’s popular and compassionate guide Parenting Beyond Belief was the first comprehensive book to offer a general philosophy of nonreligious par­enting.  Raising Freethinkers is a practical sequel, providing specific answers to common ques­tions and more than 100 activities for parents and their children. Raising Freethinkers covers every topic nonreligious parents need to know to help their children with their own moral, intellectual, and emotional development, including sound advice on religious-extended-family issues, death and life, secular celebrations, wondering and questioning, and more.  Here parents will discover practical and effective ways to:

-           Help children achieve religious literacy without indoctrination

-           Explore life’s meaning and purpose

-           Promote a healthy perspective on sexuality and body image

-           Encourage ravenous curiosity

-           Help kids come to terms with death and loss

-           Find and create community

Complete with reviews of books, DVDs, curricula, educational toys, and online resources relevant to each chapter topic, Raising Freethinkers helps nonreligious parents raise their children with confidence.
