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

Hook a blogger up and “Like” SDL on Facebook!

Let me tell you five incredibly short stories about one big bearded apparently shallow blogger man and five very pretty girls. Then you be the judge.

Sometimes in an attempt to learn about myself, I write dark truth wrapped in wholly fictional narrative. I don't usually share those with you when I write them. But that is what you'll read today.

I still can't believe the bad karma that nailed me for stealing a couple of chocolates from a turn-down cart in the hallway...

There's a tree on a trail about an hour from our home. An aspen tree. If you were to see it, you wouldn't think it was all that special.

Last night, in the abyss of craziness that my mind was, I shared what I was feeling in the aftermath of my breakup... Today... I don't know...
