This candid parenting guide rejects the idea that parents need God to raise moral children. Full of practical advice drawn from nearly fifteen years of parenting and educating children, Be-Asia McKerracher offers parents an alternative to a strictly religious upbringing. Secular parenting helps children establish respect for people regardless of their faith (or lack thereof). Instead, children raised in a secular environment grow to recognize the commonalities between the world's religions through guided exploration. Furthermore, as they mature, secular parenting allows children the freedom to choose their own faith--or decide not to choose religion at all.
What greater gift could parents provide for their children? And what greater hostility do parents sometimes encounter--from friends, loved ones, and society at large--for attempting to deliver such a gift? Secular Parenting in a Religious World provides parents with the tools to raise free-thinking children and weather the storms of familial and societal disapproval, always with our children’s futures at the forefront of our minds.
