"I want to raise my child to be skeptical and rational, but I don't want to indoctrinate my child into atheism.  What do I do?" This question is a common one for secular parents.  They're eager to raise freethinkers and protect their children from the damage done by religion, but they don't want to fall into the same traps that many religious parents do: raising parrots instead of people. Our guest, Dale McGowan is co-author of the books, Parenting Beyond Belief and Raising Freethinkers.  He writes the secular parenting blog, The Meming of Life, and in 2008 was named Harvard Humanist of the Year.   LINKS:   BOOK: PARENTING BEYOND BELIEF BOOK: RAISING FREETHINKERS BOOK: ATHEISM FOR DUMMIES SPEECH: Dale McGowan at the 2013 Oklahoma Freethought Convention: "Raising (Actual) Freethinkers" BLOG:  The Meming of Life
