This group was started so that members can help each other work through the difficulties and questions of raising a child or children as secular freethinkers in a mainly religious society. You should join if you have questions such as "Is telling my child santa is real the same as telling them jesus is real?" or "What do I do when my child wants to go to church or is curious why all his/her friends are going without him/her?"

This group can help you regardless of whether you're an atheist, agnostic, humanist, freethinker, or whatever else you call yourself, so long as you would like to raise your child (or children) as a critical free-thinker that will make his/her own decisions regarding religion.

Children are welcome to come to the meetups and make friends too!"

    "I have a 14-year old. Because the public schools here are so lacking, I've felt I've had no choice, but private school, which means a religious school. We have a lot of discussions about alternative spiritual philosophies."
