Relax, It’s Just God is a great title for Wendy Thomas Russell’s guide to How and Why to Talk to Your Kids About Religion When You’re Not Religious:
“Written for secular parents from a nonreligious perspective, this guide explores methods of teaching youngsters about God, religion and spirituality… Chapters deal with a variety of topics such as reactions of grandparents and other relatives, mixed-faith marriages, kids being harassed at school and how to handle discussions of death. At the same time, her easy-to-read style is down-to-earth and conversational. Contains a wealth of information for secular or mixed-religion families preparing for the God talk with kids.”
When a three year old points to a church and asks, “What’s that building? Can we go in?” If you say, “Not today, it’s a church and churches are open only on Sundays,” you will hear the inevitable question, “Why?” Relax, It’s Just God will help you answer those and other questions about God and religion.
