Hello! My carer thinks i am a satanist and thinks all witchcraft is evil and is a sin against god...I have tried explaining it to her but she doesn't seem to want to take in what i am telling her, she doesn't like me talking about witchcraff to my friends who also unknown to her practice witchcraft too and anyone else for that matter because " she doesn't want me passing on this bull", she tells me i shouldn't practice it and talks behind my back about it to her church friends and family. What should i do?!
Try to sit down with her when she is not thinking about it. Prepare for this converstion very well. You can find sources of information to help you explain it. Use these sources. If she tries to interrupt and say that it is not true, listen to her and explain why what she is saying is not true. Try to not use force or anything that is threatening to her. If she is angry or frustrated calm her down and be comforting.
I hope it will get better between the two of you.

Your 'carer,' as in caretaker? Is this something like a nanny?
Firstly, if you are able to independently practice, there really is no reason to tell people. A lot of people do not understand witchcraft or occultism.
If you are not an autonomous adult, I would suggest being careful about stockpiling materials or practicing in a visual manner. I would honestly advise more to research and study, while not practicing, while under the roof of someone who presides over you. Once you are on your own, by all means, live your life as you choose.
There's not much to do but do as they say because they taught not listen to any other information about witchcraft than what its said to be in church and will under no circumstances believe what you say about it and consider your knowledge of wrong and all lies
if you can privately discuss witchcraft with friends who practice that can be done do that
Trying to educated the hard headed won't work unless it violent which isn't an option unless you plan on life in prison for what they would complain about as attempted murder
So you have no option but to mostly study witchcraft and not practice in a noticible manner
When i say " carer" i mean as in foster carer. My mum's side is who raised me around witchcraft and the occult. There is supposed to be a rule where the child is able to practice their religion without having problems like this but i don't know how my carer will act if i bring the rules up. I do talk about it to my friends but my carer still thinks that i shouldn't spread my witchcraft talk to my friends who also practice it. I gave a book to my friend on his bday and she said she didn't want me teaching others about it when he was the one who wanted to add more knowledge to his practice.
By the way... If you suggest i be more private about this is there any spells that can like... Make people not notice my stuff so easily? Or keep them from prying into my stuff? Thanks.
simply keep it private between only you and your friends. its almost impossible to get a die hard christian to believe that magick is evil. if you want to explain to her, say something along the lines of: "there are good and bad sides of witchcraft just like there is with christianity.", "I practice white magic" (if you practice black magic do not tell, thatll just make it worse) i hope she gets off your back about it. perhaps bring up the rules you speak of about freedom of religion. is there anyone you can complain to about this? its a violation and she is basically harassing you. dont give in, stick with your gift. stay true to yourself. blessed be.
I don't know if it's a foster care worker or a baby sitter or something but if you don't have parents a trusted adult or social service worker you can talk to about it just try to keep it on the down low until your 18. If you feel like it's getting to the point of verbal abuse or like you aren't safe in your household because of it talk to a trusted adult or social service worker immediately. Best wishes.
