Raising Childern Atheist

I'm curious as to how others have answered their children’s questions about religion and how they talked to them about their beliefs or rather non beliefs. I have a 7 year old son who has started to ask a lot of questions and I don't want to impose what I believe on him but I want him to understand my point of view and to have the freedom to choose.
