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.

Tabi - I was baptized three times (Baptist), my wife once (Cath) and my son once (Cath). We're all doing just fine! How did it go?

forced by who? An ex? A grandparent? My first inclination is "oh helllllllllllls no" but I don't know the situation completely

Hi Tabi,
I was baptized when I was little, but... it didn't take! So, I'm sure there's hope for her.

Hi everyone! I just recently joined AtheistNexus and am about to be a first time mom here in a couple weeks! Due May 14th to a little boy!

Hoping to get tips and read stories from fellow atheist parents.
Just recently bought 2 book one called "Raising Freethinkers"
and another called "Maybe Yes, Maybe No."

If anyone has any other books they could recommend that would be great!

Hi everyone! Just joined up and, like Jessica, I am a parent of twin 17 month-olds but of different models (b/g). They're heathens by default, I intend to keep them that way...
