"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.
