Publisher's Summary

Praised by Newsweek as a "compelling read" and Library Journal as "accessible and down-to-earth", Dale McGowan’s Parenting Beyond Belief offered freethinking parents everywhere a compassionate introduction to raising caring, ethical children without religious guidance. Now, for the more than 40 million people in the United States who identify themselves as nonreligious, Raising Freethinkers offers solutions to the unique challenges secular parents face and provides specific answers to common questions, as well as over 100 activities for both parents and their children. This book covers every important topic nonreligious parents need to know to help their children with their own moral and intellectual development, including advice on religious-extended-family issues, death and life, secular celebrations, wondering and questioning, and more.
Complete with reviews of books, DVDs, curricula, educational toys, and online resources relevant to each chapter topic, Raising Freethinkers helps parents raise their children with confidence.

There has got to be a better way !

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, I would NOT read off 100 different web sites. I would have them all as links in a pdf that was issued as auxiliary material to the audiobook, and then just have them referenced in that pdf. Instead of: "Eych Tee Tee Pee colon foward slash, forward slash, stupid dot org, forward slash, annoying, forward slash, got underscore, to, underscore, be, underscore, a, underscore, better, underscore, way, underscore, dot Eych Tee, Em, El.",

Instead it would just be: "Web Link number 16 in your pdf" and the flow of the reading would not come to a screeching halt.

Any additional comments?

Good subject, and good recommendations. Buy it in another format. I bet the Kindle version has active links.

print or e-book would be a better experience.

good content for humanist parenting, but there are many references to visual lists and hyperlinks that don't convey audibly very well.
