    It seems to be hard to find resources for parents trying to raise a Christian liberal child. Everything is geared toward more conservative Christianity. I need something else. Help!

    I don't know but will toss out some ideas. Check with local home-school groups for regular activity meets. Start a local group on Find Meetup groups near you - Meetup to meet other families with similar interests.

    A quick Google search gave me this: ProgressiveChristianity.org seems to have a 'children's curriculum'. Those aren't free resources though. But maybe some libraries have the curriculum?

    Just a quick word of advise, Thirza... I have learned through experience that it's pretty hard to raise a Christian liberal child, a Christian conservative child, an LDS Christian child, a Catholic Christian child, etc. etc. etc. In the end, your child will become what he chooses to be. Your best bet would be to teach by example, and hope for the best.
