Overview

Pagan Parenting by Kristin Madden is the first book to honestly and boldly approach all of the problems a Pagan might face while trying to raise a child. This is an excellent book to have, whether you have a child now, or are planning on having one soon.

One of the problems faced by all parents is what to say when you get those "tough" questions from youngsters. You have to be honest, but at the same time it is important to speak to them at their level so they are sure to understand. How do you answer when a child asks, "Will you die? What happens when you die? Do animals have spirits?" With older children the questions can become even more difficult. "My boyfriend/girlfriend wants me to have sex. What should I do?" The answers suggested in this book are not of the this-is-what-you-must-say type, but rather are open-ended. Madden points out possible responses and problems with the answers you may consider giving. In this way your responses can be totally your own.

Another important aspect of raising a Pagan child is being able to help that child develop her or his psychic and magical abilities. Young children may not have the ability to concentrate for long periods of time, and quick-witted older children may become bored. The author suggests many fun activities which turn psychic, magical, and spiritual development into games. This will allow your child to develop and keep those abilities without becoming bored or disinterested.

What should you do if your child decides to look at another religion or become a member of another religion? This has never been dealt with in a book for Pagan parents. Until now. Until here. Until Pagan Parenting.

In some ways it is impossible to fully describe this book. It covers so many things about raising Pagan children that to focus on one leaves out the others. To find out how important this book is, you just have to read it.

Dandelion Fuzz Wishes: Elemental Air Magic for Young Children

For the baby or young toddler, dandelion fuzz can be the tool for their very first natural magic. Dandelions grow in almost all areas and most of us are familiar with making wishes while blowing the fuzz from them at the end of their season. This is very similar to the wish-spells associated with blowing out birthday candles. Just as in any form of magic, belief and emotion are vital to the success of a dandelion fuzz wish and, with very young children, a parent may need to initially provide this.

Dandelion Fuzz Wish

Before going out to find a dandelion in fuzz, decide on the wish you and your child will be making. Then go outside with that wish in your minds and ask to be led to the dandelion that wants to help make that wish come true. Ask before picking the dandelion of your choice. When permission is given, pick it with a prayer of thanks. If your child is able, have him or her say thank you along with you as you pick the flower.

Hold the dandelion by its stem and have the child hold it gently with you. An older child can hold the plant alone. Repeat the wish out loud. If your child is old enough, tell them to imagine the wish growing really big in their head. Then blow the wish out into the dandelion fuzz, and watch as it is carried off into the air.

Tell your child that the wish is now part of the fuzz and the air will carry it to the Great Spirit or God and Goddess.

    Excellent

    This is an excellent book for pagan parnts and parents-to-be. I believe it would also be great for beginners for the simple yet powerful exercises and rituals. It speaks to all pagans, no matter what tradition they follow. I liked the fact that she offered her own experiences and suggestions, plus those of many other pagan parents, but made it clear that these ideas are to 'spur your own creativity'. She empowers parents to find the best for their own families and offers stories, prayers, exercises, rituals, and resources to help.

    Attention Pagan parents!!

    This book is a must have for all pagan parents. It is incredibly informative and delightfully written. As a pagan mother to be I highly reccomend this book to anyone who wishes to raise their children with an awareness of the old ways. It is very exciting to have a book specifically for pagan parents! I'm sure you all will agree when I say that it is about time!!
