SHL Secular Parenting Discussion Group - Monday 10/27 at 7pm

The following e-mail announcement was sent by Amy Monsky to the Family Friendly Activities mailing list:

Please join us for our secular

parenting discussion on Monday, October 27 at 7pm. The idea behind this

will be to discuss topics that are the most prevalent/difficult for

secular parents, to share ideas, and build a supportive community. As

this is our first, we will determine

what are needs are, discuss the format for future meetups, and go from

there. What I had envisioned was to have monthly discussion groups with a

pre-set topic (eg church-state issues in school, managing relationships

with religious family members, talking about death, helping our

children to navigate peer shunning and loss of friendships due to

religious differences, etc.), but we will go with the needs of the

group. We will also discuss the social needs of our secular families in

order to create the best events and programs for a supportive community.

Topic for 10/27: What challenges do you face as a secular parent/family? What would you like to see in a secular community?

This event is designed to be for adults only. Babies in arms are okay,

but please leave other children at home so that we can focus on the

topic at hand with minimal distraction.

This is especially for both moms and dads, but grandparents and parents-to-be are also welcome.

We are meeting at Homegrown Brewhouse at 117 S Main St in Summerville. They are a small, locally-owned

pub who is allowing us to use their space. Please buy a drink or two if

you can, and please no outside food or drink. They have non-alcoholic

beverages as well as some food.

I hope to see you there!
