This little book is full of great ideas to use if you are trying to raise a Pagan (or even just an Earth-Centered) child. Certainly it would be each parent's responsibility to pick and choose what makes the most sense for their own child/ren and family, but that's always the way with parenting books.

The best aspect of this book is O'Gaea's concept of "Regency Parenting". That we are acting as our children's regents until the time that the are fully capable of taking care of themselves. This doe

This book was a waste of time and money, unfortunately. Sure, it had a couple nice chants, a little worthy advice here or there. But in the grand scheme, it really came across to me as a parenting how to book. For someone who has THREE children, I got bored very quickly.

I was recently rereading this book, it has parenting advice that I feel is a bit new age. Along with chants, crafts, basic rituals, and ideas on how to teach your kids about wheel of the year, elements, and the directions.
I am uncomfortable about the idea of the child skyclad circle. that idea is introduced later in the book.
Guided meditations,practical ideas for educational activities. It includes a glossary and a recommended reading lists.Detailed discussions. Raising Witches finally gives parents the means to communicate the rudiments of their faith to their children.

Well organized by age. I've already implemented some of the content of this book and will revisit it as my children grow.

This is a good companion book to Family Wicca. I would have really enjoyed having this book 15- 20 years ago. For me, it is much better than Circle Round.
