Hi all, I am 8 weeks away from giving birth to my first baby, and I've been questioning how to deal with my fundamentalist family now that I will have a child. I don't want my child to be exposed to any of their beliefs. But they're my family, I love them, I see them pretty often, and they will certainly love and want to see their new grandchild. I'm wondering whether anyone has found a book out there that helps new parents cope with this situation. Thanks! Laura

I'm sure you're going to find this an odd reply, but what about "Boundaries" by John Stroud (I think?). It is a "Christian" book in that the author is a Christian. But it has alot of good, solid advice about how to lay down boundaries in such a way that other people know when they have crossed the line (if they truly care). I found the book helpful in giving me some tools to let my other fundie family members know what subjects/attitudes I just won't tolerate. And they have, to my surprise, honored most of my wishes.

I don't want to entirely shield my children from fundamentalism because I want them to know how destructive it can be. So I believe the answer is education, not avoidance. But for those times when education involves exposure, I want boundaries there to let others know that there are some lines that just shouldn't be crossed, even if they believe they are doing it in the name of God.
