“This unique resource will help parents looking for useful ideas and information on being a nonreligious family. Recommended for public libraries.” Library Journal
“Raising Freethinkers is dynamic, thought-provoking reading for anyone, but non-religious parents will discover they no longer need to feel quite so alone.” --January Magazine
Praised by Newsweek as “a compelling read” and Library Journal as “accessible and down-to-earth,” Dale McGowan’s Parenting Beyond Belief offered freethinking parents everywhere a compassionate introduction to raising caring, ethical children without religious guidance. Now, for the more than 40 million people in the United States who identify themselves as nonreligious, Raising Freethinkers offers solutions to the unique challenges secular parents face and provides specific answers to common questions, as well as over 100 activities for both parents and their children. This book covers every important topic nonreligious parents need to know to help their children with their own moral and intellectual development, including advice on religious-extended-family issues, death and life, secular celebrations, wondering and questioning, and more.
Complete with reviews of books, DVDs, curricula, educational toys, and online resources relevant to each chapter topic, Raising Freethinkers helps parents raise their children with confidence.

"Just wanted to thank you for the two parenting books that you sent us! We haven't finished them yet, but so far they're awesome! The book about free thinking without religion is particularly great! It's already spawned some good discussions, and the anecdotes about how to teach right from wrong without the religious copout are going to be great resources. The book definitely has us thinking about and preparing how to answer questions both now and down the road, and had us researching and learning more about humanism and the values and free thinking ability that we want to instill in A_____. I think that book has had the most impact on us compared to all of the other baby gifts that we have received, and I really, really want to thank you for that. With living in the Bible belt and having Sundays and Wednesday nights unavailable for activities because 'everyone goes church', it's nice to know what to say and how to explain that not everyone has to be a believer."
