It can be hard to grapple with life’s big questions without the answers that religion seems to provide–but it gets much harder once children are involved. Those on the journey of secular parenting will find support and empowerment in PARENTING BEYOND BELIEF: On Raising Ethical, Caring Kids Without Religion, Second Edition (AMACOM December 2016), a book of many perspectives edited by Dale McGowan. Journalists, booksellers, book reviewers, librarians, and media professionals interested in parenting and secular ethics are invited to request Parenting Beyond Belief for review.
Why am I here? What happens after we die? These are some of the hardest questions a child can ask—and even harder for parents to answer, especially if you’ve chosen to raise your child without religion.
Gathering the perspectives of educators and psychologists, as well as wisdom from everyday parents, Parenting Beyond Belief offers insights and advice on a wide range of topics including:
Instilling values • Finding meaning and purpose • Navigating holidays • Coping with loss • Finding community without religion…and more
The second edition of this secular parenting bestseller brings back reflections from such celebrated freethinkers as Richard Dawkins and Julia Sweeney, and adds new voices including journalist Wendy Thomas Russell, essayist Katherine Ozment, sociologist Phil Zuckerman, and many others.
Wise, entertaining, and deeply supportive, the book will empower parents in their quest to raise ethical, compassionate, and open-minded children—without religion.
