and my two grannies. One who was a cathloic rasied witch and the other a full fledged druid.

I guess I just listened to everyone and followed what was inside me. So I'm a heinz 57 lol.

I'm glad there are others out there who I can talk to now.

My first big question is has anyone raised pagan children or not?
My son is a general christian right now. He's almost 8 and has decided to give it a try. sometimes I get flack from my husband about not trying to raise him to one faith.
Any thoughts or opinions?
My son is 15 months old. We are going to raise him neutral, but I would love him to realise he prefers pagan beliefs!! We are having a namind ceremony for him, with a lot of pagan influence in it! x

Hi,

I'm not actively practicing, due to time commitments (when did life get so hectic???), but I do believe and read/learn when I can.

I am pagan, but I am not wiccan, or anything like that. I am shamanic (the only word I could think of to describe what I am), meaning I follow more of a native american medicine path.

Hey, I am pagan. I have been reading what I can since I was 13 (I`m 22 now), but growing up in a Catholic family made it veryyyy difficult to practice. DF isn`t really anything, he grew up Anglican, but try and get him to go to church... . I`m glad I found this thread!

JellyBeann: I really loved your description of Paganism and your beliefs. I relate to Paganism a lot (something I found out in the recent weeks) and I'm looking into it more and more.

Congrats on the Triplets!!

Although I have read a lot of what I could find, I would like to start practicing more. I find it's something that I've always felt connected to and I like that.

I'm a non-practicing Pagan. I've been a steadfast believer my whole life, and used to be practicing - but fell out of it as I got older, got a job, etc.

I find myself drawn to the idea of raising a child in a Pagan/Goddess tradition.. though I have almost no idea how to do it. I was raised non-denominational with a strong leaning towards Catholic doctrine. When I got old enough to discover religion for myself, I became Pagan (roughly 12) and have described myself as such ever since.

I feel like it would be uniquely challenging to raise a child as a Pagan, and something I would honestly love to do. It would probably help me to get my life in a better balance as well. I've been meaning to take up practicing again, but tend to put it off.

My OH was raised Christian and would like our kids to be raised neutral.. with no religious overtones whatsoever. I feel like that can leave a spiritually sensitive child a little lacking or unfulfilled - I know I felt that way. My mom always said we were Catholic but had no guidance, no church, no nothing.. religion was not mentioned every day.. etc. Once I discovered the tenets of Paganism I felt like I was coming home, or was being made "whole." (don't mind my cheesiness). She doesn't mind that I want to raise them Pagan, as long as "it's important" to me.

It is.. but I would need help with ideas about holidays, every day practicing, etc. My practicing was always personal and I never felt comfortable with the idea of joining a coven or a circle.. but I would do it, for my child's sake, if only to expose him/her to other Pagan families and children.

Ah! that turned into a novel. Sorry!

I feel that same way, and I have been strongly considering raising our future children as Pagan... Not sure if I will select a denomination or just leave it up to them to choose something that feels right with them.

Here are some books I was looking into getting, I think that they might help.
-Circle Round//Book Review
-Pagan Parenting

Hope that helps somee|!|
