Welcome to Parenting Little Heathens

Hi moms and dads. Welcome to the parenting without religion group here at A|N. Please feel free to post an introduction, tell us about yourself or if you'd rather not, just jump right into any discussion.

Before you get started I would like you to be familiar with our Posting Rules and Guidelines. This will help clarify what this group is and what topics are appropriate or inappropriate.

Also, you might be interested in our list of atheist related parenting resources list. This is a work in progress, if you've found something you think is a good fit please post a reply and I'll see about adding it.

If at any time you would like to contact me, the easiest way is to send a private message through my page. However, in order to send any member a PM you must first be their friend.

Thank you for joining the group, I hope you enjoy being here.

-Dawn K

I have a 7- and almost-9-year old and I'd love to check it out!  If we like it I'd write about it in my blog, too!

That was quick - OK, Soulf2 gets a CD! Just message me where to send it! 

And how bout this - I'll send a second copy to someone with older kids (age 8-12) so we can get a big-kid perspective on it too. Thanks!

@GBM Harpe My 4y/o is a science music fan and would likely love it!
Comment by GBM Harper on March 2, 2011 at 3:53pm
I could recommend my own CD here - "Songs From the Science Frontier" but I realize my opinion of it may be a bit biased. How 'bout I send a copy to the first person who asks, in return for which, you can recommend it to the group if you like it? (I aimed it at kids age 8 and up, though others have told me their 4 - 7 year olds love it too.)

They Might Be Giants "Here comes science" CD/DVD is awesome!

Science and math songs and videos for kids. This looks pretty cool, a bit goofy, but cool for kids.

Since my sister's kids always sing church songs and watch veggie tales when my kiddo stays over there, I have started reading an evolutionary kids book when they stay over called "Our Family Tree". :P

Looks interesting, I might download it (link http://bit.ly/gQ5U6E) Too bad for the kids that the only mac in the house is my computer and I'm selfish ;)
