Parenting Beyond Belief: On Raising Ethical, Caring Kids Without Religion.
Parenting Beyond Belief is a book for loving and thoughtful parents who wish to raise their children without religion. There are scores of books available for religious parents. Now there’s one for the rest of us.
I am not a parent myself, but I have been looking forward to this book for quite some time. Noell, the creator of the blog Agnostic Mom, was one of the contributing parents for it. In her blog she has always addressed the issue of how to raise moral, and ethical children without religion. This book is to help parents do just that.
Like many, I grew up in a Christian family, so I was taught morals from a biblical perspective. When I became agnostic I still held onto the morals, but my reasons for doing so were not the same. I can see some of the difficulty in teaching children what is morally right without falling back on religion. Hopefully some of the secular parents will find this book helpful!
