I started getting into witchcraft/wicca a few weeks, at most a month, ago. Im a 12 year old jewish girl. Ive done only a simple warmth spell but thats about it. I can slip into a half meditation state, but thats about it, because my parents dont know that im interested in witchcraft. Ive been relying on iBook samples and online help because i dont have any money, nor do i know any stores or how to drive, to get supplies and books and other stuff. I dont want to tell my parents, im really scared what they will say and think, but as i get deeper ive been realizing that to go any farther i probably need to tell them. What should i do? If i should tell them, how do i tell them?

first, to join you need to be 13, but this is the internet, and honestly, whose gonna enforce that rule?
since you're jewish, i'm guessing your bat mitzvah is coming up, or happened. i think that's probably the time you should tell them since it's a coming of age thing and you're agreeing to go forth in your faith. there's something similar in wicca for kids, but they're asked right there if they want to continue on the path, if they say no, it's no big deal. i wasn't jewish, and i'm not friends with a lot of jews, so i don't know the ceremony that well, but that would be the best time, before you go through with it.
if you don't feel comfortable, leave it, but you should tell them sooner rather then later. your parents should understand and support you, but if you think they won't leave it, just remember some day you need to tell them. meditate on it, the answer should come to you.
