Raising children in a non-religious household offers a number of unique challenges.
- What should we teach our children about religion?
- How do we teach our children to interact with religious peers and relatives?
- How do we instil secular ethics?
- What do we tell our kids about death?
The BCHA Secular Parenting group attempts to help answer some of these questions by providing a network of new and experienced secular parents. Through socials, meet-ups, workshops, and social media, parents are able to share their wisdom on parenting beyond belief.
We're hoping to have some programming running in Spring 2013, but for now, here's some resources to help.
