Based on the freethinking philosophy of the book Newsweek called “a compelling read,” the PARENTING BEYOND BELIEF SEMINAR is empowering secular parents across the country to raise ethical, caring, confident kids without religion.

Participants will learn effective ways to:

  • Encourage religious literacy without indoctrination;
  • Help kids interact productively with a religious world;
  • Help kids develop active moral reasoning;
  • Weigh church-state issues in the public sphere;
  • Address sensitive issues with religious relatives using the principles of nonviolent communication;
  • Help children develop a healthy understanding of death and a joyful love of life;
  • Build a family atmosphere of fearless questioning and boundless wonder;

…and much more.
