Parenting without Religion

I came across this today and decided to share it with you lovely lot. Raising a freethinker is how I prefer to view it. This was my response:-
“we raised our son to be open-minded about things , we and my parents(who were raised Jewish) are atheists, his Nana is Methodist, one of our best friends, who offered childcare is Christian poss Baptist. We would tell him what we believed and explain how it differed to what our friends/family believed and told him he was free to choose whatever path made the most sense to him based on the information he gathered from reading, school, relatives, friends etc. He is now 16 and is strong, happy, trustworthy, honest, reliable, caring, tolerant and, also, does not believe in any god or gods. We are very proud of him and the choices he makes whatever they are”

Rose Tinted Ramblings

I'm Bernice but unless I'm in trouble, it's Berni. I laugh heartily; love wholely and live completely. I write what I think. Sometimes its fun, sometimes its political, sometimes its frustration, or angst. Always its real and heartfelt. I now live in Mid Wales having found a home with my family (John, my parner and Jason, our son) here in Llanwrtyd Wells where everyday eccentricity is celebrated. a place in the UK that attracts those from outside the mainstream and has created an identity based on its quirkiness. A perfect home for someone like me who tends not to follow the crowd, doesn't have a quiet laugh, and tends to speak first, think later! Life has reached a juncture where I have become aware that when you live your life through rose-tinted spectacles, every experience becomes one including joy, laughter, friends, meetings, experiences and great memories. Having always fancied being a columnist I figured why not share my rose-tinted ramblings with anyone out there who might want to listen- and if no-ones out there, why not write them anyway - bit like a public diary - but hey I have no dirty little secrets that I'm not prepared to share....!!!!
