Kid-friendly freethought music

Hi all,For the past three years or so I've been collecting audio files that foster a skepticism of religion and an appreciation for science to play for my boys (ages 8, 6, and 4) in the car. I've put them all into a Spotify playlist.http://open.spotify.com/user/1212458330/playlist/6PYhSDCoHlWjtXKOcQ8Aa3I'm continually adding to it, so please let me know if you have other recommendations! Thanks!KevinSee More

"Our Family Tree: An Evolution Story is definitely great for younger kids.  Another awesome one is Ape by Martin Jenkins.  My young kids (ages 2, 4, and 6) enjoyed both of those."

"Hi Andrea! How old is your little one? I've never seen any board books related to science, secularism, atheism, evolution, etc. Of the books that I'm aware of, Our Family Tree: An evolution story is the book geared to the…"

Erin Jones replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"I would explain to her that an Atheist is most commonly define by not 'what"' they believe, but by what they 'don't'. You have to beliefs! and explaining that to you child in an age appropriate and respective manner…"

Jennifer Hancock replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"Just thought of another way to possibly resolve this. Perhaps you can phrase your disbelief in different terms that would be more acceptable. So - if a kid asks about prayer - you can say, well, some people think that works, but I don't think…"

Missy replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"I don't see how your children can see the alternative to their mother's beliefs if you are not allowed to voice your own beliefs, or disbeliefs. Is that not in a sense...lying? If anyone is to make an informed decision about anything, they…"

Dawn K replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"It's as if she's come up with a technical reason to force you to keep quiet. It's the same old, atheists believe in nothing and so should remain quiet, canard.    Providing as you say, you aren't insulting theists for…"

Vanessa replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"Telling your beleifs is not really bashing her religion, like it seems she is threatening to do to your beliefs. I raised my kids to have ALL the facts about both sides, not omitting what I think they should or should not know. Only in this way will…"

Jennifer Hancock replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"One way to deal with this is to ask her to help you come up with wording that is honest about your lack of belief but that is stated in a way she feels is positive. It may be something simple that you can do, regardless, engaging her in figuring out…"

Jennifer Hancock replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"Since Atheism is defined by what Atheists don't believe - that is what you believe. I agree - you can't be honest about your atheism if you aren't able to say you don't believe in gods. I see nothing wrong with that. As long as…"

§kürrý replied to Kevin Zimmerman's discussion What if religious spouse censors you from saying what you DON'T believe? in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"Isn't her telling them what she believes essentially saying that you are wrong? I don't see how that's any different than saying you don't believe in what she does."

These lectures are very good for bright schoolchildren, but I do not know the ages of yours.

Sit with the children while they watch. Pause as necessary, and help explain.

Also, try asking Richard Healey who posted a lot of videos on "Origins". Terry.

Hello Kevin Zimmerman, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that religion is a fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 280 discussion topics.
We invite you to join us and 1650 others.
