Today our son asked us what “god” is. He started kindergarten last week, and has religious grandparents, but has never been to church or had any kind of religious upbringing due to myself and his father being staunch atheists.
How do you have the atheist talk? We don’t believe in any religion, therefore we don’t have any literature, examples, or classes to give him. We tried to explain what other people think “god” is, but just couldn’t find the words to describe it. He ended up thinking that there is a god who is a magician who lies to people, which is not what we want him to think. — Jen
We’ve discussed talking about religious deities with your kids, but not about telling your kid you don’t believe in any religion at all. What have you guys tried?
