That is Called Dying (More or Less)

By Wendy Thomas Russell | March 24, 2014 | 3 comments

I’ve written reams about how to talk with children about death without resorting to religious imagery. My daughter nails it in a single sentence.

More or Less

I’m beginning to think I’m no longer needed here.


  1. Steven B says:

    I must agree. Dying is simply returning to the state we were in before we existed. As I recall, it was a very peaceful state and one I have no fear of returning to. Sort of look forward to it in some respects.

  2. Wendy,
    I love this! So simple and beautiful.
    Can I use it in an upcoming carnival?

    CAP: Carnival for Atheist Parenting

For parents who aren’t religious, the task of talking to children about religion can be daunting. So daunting, in fact, that the entire subject often gets glossed over or ignored completely. Relax, It’s Just God is a blog (and soon a book) intended to help parents break their silence without breaking a sweat.
