PARENTING HUMANISTICALLY: Without the Assist of an All-Seeing and All-Comforting Deity
Is it easier to parent if God is part of the equation? Easier for whom? The kids or their parents? If we don’t rely on the concept of a watchful God in our lives, how do we instill in our children a sense of accountability and conscience? If we don’t rely on a caring God to help us through hard times, how do we teach coping skills? If we don’t believe in a heaven and a world to come, what do we teach about death and dying? Also, as we raise our children with secular humanistic values, how do we prepare them to go out into a world that is permeated by religious culture and language?
This interactive program will be led by TCC member Jennifer Naparstek Klein, Psy.D., a licensed psychologist practicing in Bronxville, NY, specializing in child and family psychology.
Please join us for a tasty pot-luck dessert following our Shabbat service and cultural program. Childcare provided for children 11 and younger.
