Parenting has always been difficult and modern times are no exception. Historically, parents have had religious rites, rituals, and practices to rely on. People who want to parent without this reliance on religion, whether or not they are themselves religious, struggle with these missing elements. This book is an overview of parenting with Humanism, or parenting without the influence of the historical practices of religion. It is a practical guide that is meant to address the differences encountered in non-religious parenting.
