Re: Atheist parents?

I grew up in an Atheist household. I started a relationship with Jesus in high school. I can't say that either of those situations led to bullying to me or me to others. My parents expressed their beliefs and allowed me to explore mine. I think you address bullying for what it is. Any time a person is belittled for their thoughts the way they look their etc it is not ok. Address it the same way if someone bullied your child for wearing new balance instead of nike. As for "saving" I feel strongly that we each have a story about how we feel about "God". Encourage your children to embrace their story and be willing to listen to others story. You never have to change your story because of someone else's. We all have the right to choose.
