Our next meeting will focus on creating a literacy-rich home environment. We will begin by sharing our favorite books from childhood. Then we’ll learn about some recently published notable books from freethinking mom, librarian and blogger, Mindy Rhiger. Our discussion will also explore family rituals related to books and literacy.
Bring along your children, if you'd like. We’ll have a short story-time on springtime observations for them. Here’s an opportunity for free-thinking kids to share with each other and get better acquainted. Of course, there will be plenty of time for free play, so do bring along some quiet activities for them to do by themselves or with the other children.
Our Humanist Parenting Group typically meets twice a month (but this month only once). We are a relatively new group--still evolving as we seek to build a humanist community in which to raise our children. Our focus is to discuss parenting issues pertaining to the humanist lifestance and participate in multi-family activities to create bonds within our community. At this time we are meeting at different locations within the Twin Cities area. If you have ideas to share or good venues to suggest, please let me know. Audrey Kingstrom, Community Coordinator for the Humanists of MN.
