Description

Discussion of religion and politics is often seen as a taboo topic - something that you generally avoid in under-developed social engagements, and one that tends to escalate quickly when prodded. For parents, this is often escalated by pressuring family feeling a vested interest in the moral guidance of their grandkids. Don't want to baptize your child when your family wants you desperately to do so? Not a fun game to play.

But instilling moral guidance in your child is important... in my perspective, imperative. Helping them to understand, interpret and navigate the frequently "grey" world around them with a strong ethical code has never been more important. So what's a parent to do?

We'll take a swat at the bee's nest. In this podcast, we'll share some of our thoughts on religion, pros & cons with religious upbringing for kids, and our own experiences of moral & ethical guidance as parents. Reflecting on traditional religious establishments with a science & business lens, we're full of criticism, deep thoughts and opinions.

But (as always) remember - There is no one way to do things, and our way is by no means the only/best. Finding what works best for your family, situation & belief structure is recommended - through branded religion or not - and respect for others' autonomous beliefs is always encouraged.

The Save the Parents podcast is a podcast by & for parents who appreciate cynicism, skepticism, humourous and explicit podcasts. We unpack tricky issues, relate them to our own experiences. Spoken over our kitchen table, Adam & Jenny Thuen share their views, beliefs and comments to help you and other parents rise to the challenge of raising responsible kids amid today's societal challenges. Questions or comments? We would love to hear them. Check out our Patreon page at www.patreon.com/savetheparents to share. Thanks for listening!
