Welcome to Parenting Little Heathens

Hi moms and dads. Welcome to the parenting without religion group here at A|N. Please feel free to post an introduction, tell us about yourself or if you'd rather not, just jump right into any discussion.

Also, you might be interested in our list of atheist related parenting resources list. This is a work in progress, if you've found something you think is a good fit please post a reply and I'll see about adding it.

If at any time you would like to contact me, the easiest way is to send a private message through my page. However, in order to send any member a PM you must first be their friend.

Thank you for joining the group, I hope you enjoy being here.

Anybody know of a good, concise video series (youtube, netflix or otherwise) that explains cosmology/origin of the universe/planets well for a 5 year old?

The factual stuff is a bit too advanced and all of the kids stuff I seem to find are just thinly veiled creationist piles of cow dung.

thanks!

Amelia at HuffPost: "10 ways to support your gay kid, whether you know you have one or not" (or even if it turns out you don't: "And if your kid is straight, you've taught them great lessons about equality. There's no harm. After all, our kids our going to be who they are. Nothing you do or say can change that. But as parents, we can affect the way our children see themselves. I want my kids to know they are amazing.")
