I wish I could say that I wasn't in this boat, but I am.  My son has been told somewhere, that if he doesn't believe in god and jesus, that he will burn in hell.  Now this has bothered him from a…Continue

Hello! I am new! My profile wont let me upload a picture at this moment, but I am an atheist single mother of a sweet 3 year old. I lost all of my friends and most of my family when I left the Independent Fundamental Baptist church that my family joined 8 years ago. Maybe 9 now. I have made a few friends since then but being a single parent is hard, and its even harder without a group of people with whom you socialize and hang out with AKA friends. I would REALLY like to make new friends that are NOT religious and wont tell my daughter that she is bad because she wears pants. I am having a hard time finding other Atheist parents, most of the support groups in my area are filled with childless adults that want to get together and meet at a pub, or 21 and over locations, but I need support where I can bring my child and not have to put her in daycare. I hope I can make some new friends here!

Matt, sounds like your daughter has a great head on her shoulders!  I hope her mother respects her opinion.  A lot of the time that just isn't the case, and pressure is brought to bear.  That's so sad when it happens.  It's great she has you to lean on, and has at least one rational parent ;)

I have a very simular situation with my 14 year old daughter. Thing is, my ex dosen't realize that you can't convert a true atheist to christianity or any other religion. My ex wife continues to end up on the losing side of arguments with her daughter on the subject. Instead of trying to make a positive point about religeon to try and convince our daughter, she envokes the whole "you are going to end up in hell" angle. Now I have a daughter that thinks her mother is completely bat shit crazy. I do have to say, its great being the "good parent".
