Wicca 101 - What are We? The Kid's Version

Wednesday, February 9, 2011
For this topic I'm not going to make a list of things to teach your kid. What kid likes to learn lists of words and topics? This isn't school, it's supposed to be fun. Instead I want to just talk about Wicca in a more organic method.

We are a group of religious practitioners that believe that the Goddess and the God are evident in all things. I think this sets us apart from many other religions. But saying this is not enough, because like most other things in this religion, it must be experienced. So take your kids camping or fishing. Or just take them out of the city and let them experience the wonder of nature. When they ask why something is the way it is, or who makes the flowers so pretty. Then you can talk about the Goddess and the God and how they are part of all things.

Our world view is one of those things that also sets us apart from other faiths. We don't see things as necessarily black and white rather we weigh them depending on the circumstances that we are in. Now there are exceptions to this, like any other rule, but it applies to many things. As parents we are in an unique position to pass this on to our children. And through doing so, teach them about Wicca.

So I think you see the point I am trying to make here. To explain what Wicca is to our kids, all we have to do is start. We all know what we believe and why we act as we do, most of this is shaped by our faith. Pass that onto your kids and you have begun the journey of raising Wiccan/Pagan kids.

If you have anything to add, specific examples of things I missed or just input on what I have already said, it would be appreciated.

Blessed Be!
