Alyssa peppered me with questions tonight about God and heaven. Being an atheist it is hard to answer those kind of questions. There’s an urge to tell her it’s all hogwash, but at the same time she is a child and I want her to be optimistic and believe in magic, like Santa. I feel like as an adult I am very much a pessimist. I could use some advice on how to raise a child when one person is Christian and one an atheist.
