Discussion by: PeterMcG
I like to joke I am a devout atheist! I have four children, and they have been brought up in a totally non-religious secular upbringing – to the extent they are totally unaware of God or organised religions.
My eldest is now 8 and has started to ask questions which is totally natural – a recent conversation on reincarnation has led to my daughter getting upset, and my kids have encountered awkward moments with cousins who are brought up in a faith.
So, I now realise I need to educate my kids – so I need help.
My thoughts are I need to give them an overview of the world, its history, and the evolution of animals and humans. To give them a knowledge of all the organised religions and practices so there's no more awkward shrugs of the shoulder in conversations.
SO, is this the best route to take? Are there books/videos that can help me that are aimed at young inquistive kids?
All suggestions and advice most welcomed, kind regards Peter
