I just sent a reply to another post, in which I used a comment my almost 8 year old daughter made not long ago. She is a declared atheist, a decision she's made based on the discussions her Dad and I have on a regular basis. I love how her mind works, and I love her incredible intelligence and her desire to learn the truth.

When I look around me though, most parents will tell me that their kids really don't have much to say about the subject at all. In most families, religion has never even come up. (Needless to say almost all my friends are atheists/agnostics). What about you guys? Do you have little atheists in your families? Or do your kids have an opinion at all?

When asked by our neighbor's son the other day, whether she believed in God, she proudly said no to him. He said, this was weird, and she simply smiled and said, "Well, if you think so... " Then they went on to play.

Looking forward to hearing your stories.

We are atheists. We don't believe in the Easter Bunny and neither does our 14 year old. We don't believe in Santa, either. But every year we have make-believe ceremonies to cater for our childlike sense of wonder and fantasy. We have easter egg hunts and we have Xmas presents from a Santa, Mary Christmas, the Xmas Spirit and so on. It's fun. Atheism does not have to be boring.
