RAISING CHILDREN IN A SECULAR HUMANIST ENVIRONMENT

 
Dear Atheist, Agnostic and Humanist Parents,
I am writing an essay about raising children without the beliefs in God and Religion. Would you be kind enough to share your experiences how you raised your children in a secular humanist environment? How did you answer your children when they asked questions about:
A, Issues of belief in God, Prophets, Scriptures and Life after Death.
B, Issues of rituals….prayers, fasting and pilgrimage.
C, Issue of ethics and concepts of sin and guilt.
Please share some of the stories of your family life especially when you had to deal with those relatives, friends and teachers who believed in God and Religion, performed rituals and promoted concepts of sin and guilt in your children. Your answers will be a lot in writing about that topic.
                             Your secular humanist friend,
                                                Khalid Sohail

Ps…This letter is inspired by Abderrahim’s following letter who wants to raise his 6year old twin daughters in a secular humanist environment.
