A guide for raising morally conscious children without religious dogma

Richard A. Conn, Jr. demonstrates why all parents who value science and reason can help stop the centuries-old practice of religious indoctrination and offers advice on how to encourage children to discover the world and their place in it for themselves. Only by teaching them that we are in this world together and have a limited time to live can we truly enable them to flourish and build a peaceful world—not just for their generation but for the future.


"In a period of religious extremism Richard Conn provides practical advice about how to raise children without religious dogma, as thoughtful, responsible, creative individuals." —George Soros, philanthropist and author

"A remarkable book I wish I had read thirty years ago. A convincing and beautiful guide to nonreligious parenting." —Henrik Carlsen, father of world chess champion Magnus Carlsen
