How do I handle religious differences with my ex?

How do I handle religious differences with my ex?

Dear Dan,

So, my son’s father was remarried a few weeks ago. The new wife is VERY religious, and my son’s dad is becoming a lot more religious than I ever knew him to be. I am not against this, I am open to them teaching my son different and new things… but with me being not religious at ALL (spiritual, yes) it has caused a few issues.

The main one was recently was when my son came home and told me that “C” (the new wife) told him that God made him, and I had nothing to do with that process since I was un-wed. My son is 4 and I was kinda dumb-founded when he told me this and I really didn’t know what to say (although I wanted to say a few choice things to this woman). I don’t know how to handle it and I am not sure what to say to my son. I don’t want this woman filling his head with these kinds of things either. Help!!!

Thanks, Non-Religious Mom

I think some people are like Great White Sharks. Mean, misunderstood, and they have no idea that they are who they are. No idea that they're feared. No idea...

Watch the video. Tomorrow I want to talk about it. Can't do it today. Weeping. Jonah, I love you.
