Tell Parents???
By:
Post # 1
Tomorrow is my first ever anniversary of being a witch and i had planned to tell my parents, (starting with my dad) that i am a witch and do magic. Now i'm not so sure. I just did a tarot reading on this site, 3 actually, asking how they would react, and all 3 times the cards said my world would be turned upside down and i'd regret it. So should i tell them or not? Nobody knows i'm a witch and i'm not sure how my parents would react. What do you guys think?

Fist of all, don't listen to the tarot card readings off of a website.

And we don't know your parents, we can't really give you good advice, but honestly if your ready to tell, things shouldn't go to bad, if they don't like it what's the worst that they can do?

I wouldn't normally listen to a tarot reading off a website, but the cards said i'd regret it ALL 3 TIMES. And they were right about all the other stuff. Good point though, what's the worst that could happen? I guess they could go completely psychotic and start sending me to a psychologist or something...

If you're underage, your parents are legally in control of your religion. I know it's wrong and all, but that's just how it is. If your parents took it poorly, they could really make your life miserable - confiscate your books and tools, monitor who you hang out with and your time on the internet.

For most kids they have a lot to lose and not a whole lot to gain by telling their unsupportive parents. If your parents were likely to be cool about it, you'd probably already know how they'd react.

Just be patient, eventually you'll be an adult, and then you'll hopefully be in complete control of your life, to heck with what your parents say.

I do understand, though, that it's hard to keep things secret. If you feel you must tell them, do some research online for tips on coming out to your parents. I gave my parents a little book expressely for educating outsiders called Principles of Paganism.

Thanks ldygry, unfortunately my parents try to restrict me as much as they can already.
I have to hide ALL of my magic stuff and use the internet for almost everything. I use apples version of the internet called Safari because it keeps the history separate from internet explorer, i think my dad MIGHT be o.k. with it, but i no my mom wouldn't. I really don't know what else they can do...

Yeah, hon, they can probably do a whole lot more, like sending you to Bible camp, putting internet filters on, finding your magical equipment, etc. Just remember that the Universe gives you exactly the parents you need in life to accomplish your goals. Exactly how this works is often not apparent until you're much older - perhaps your death bed even! Use this opportunity to practice nergy cultivation techniques and meditation and visualization. If you get five or six years of study, when you turn 18 you'll be very well started.

I think it is too soon.. one year is not enough to come up with all the answers of the questions they are going to be throwing at you... unless you are quick with your tongue.. besides that.. If I was you will be giving hints of what I practice and let them come up with the conclusion themselves. . ^_^

Trust me i'm VERY quick with my tongue. And i'v learned soooo much stuff in the past year it's unbelievable. And my "anniversary" is just the date i started keeping a spell book and doing spells. Really i'v been doing magic all my life. And i'v been reincarnated many, many, many, more times then most people so answering questions wouldn't be a problem. I'v already written my dad a letter and everything, i thought it would be easier then saying, "Guess what! I'm a witch with magic powers!" to his face.
