Parenting Without God is for parents who lack belief in a god and who are seeking guidance on raising free thinkers in a Christian-dominated nation. It will help parents give their children the tools to stand up to attempts at religious proselytization, whether by teachers, coaches, friends, or even other family members. It also offers advice on teaching children to question what others tell them and to reach their own conclusions based on evidence and reason. Above all, the book argues that parents should lead by example - both by speaking candidly about the importance of secularism and by living an openly secular life.
I think this book was more about pandering to a liberal audience than offering any sound advice. I was much excited, but ended much disappointed.
I enjoyed this book very much. The only thing I didn't like was his highly liberal stand and American shame. America does have a shameful past but I don't think we should show disgust for this country just because some of us didn't choose to live here. Also, I don't think holding doors for women should be scoffed at. But I do agree with teaching kids to hold doors for anyone. Other than that, I enjoyed the tips and experiences he discusses. I feel more motivated to be an "out" atheist mom.
