Practical Witchy Parenting Tips

November 06, 2018 1 Comment


A parent’s job isn’t easy. A parent’s job lasts twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week for the rest of your life. Instead of constantly worrying about your children, if they’re being taught the right things and whether they’re healthy and safe, why not use a little magic? Here’s our list of practical witchy parenting tips!

1. Bedroom Protection
There are hundreds of ways to physically and spiritually protect your children at home. Start by planting a magical plant outside their bedroom windows: purple lilacs ward off evil spirits and thorny bushes like rose or bougainvillea keep spiritual AND physical intruders at bay. Hanging a beech tree branch above the child’s window protects from lightning strikes.
A sprig of rue or rosemary hung above the crib or bed protects the child from the fairies.

2. Night-time Fears
Many children are afraid of the dark. Some are even unfortunate enough to have ongoing nightmares or night terrors. In addition to a simple nightlight, place large chunks of rose quartz and selenite in the child’s bedroom (if your child is very small, put it high out of reach). Rose quartz soothes a child’s nerves while selenite brings in white light and angelic protection.



3. Outside Protection
We know how to protect our children at home, but what about when they leave the house? Kids have to
go to school, doctor’s appointments, sports activities, friends’ houses, and more. So how do we protect them while they’re away? Cleanse and charge a charm for protection and clip it to their backpack so they’ll have it at school. The same can be done with a necklace or piece of jewelry. Every night, pray to the ancestors or gods to protect your children while they’re gone. You can also visualize a white bubble of impenetrable protection around your children while they’re away.

4. Juggling Parenthood and the Craft
Many parents of the craft complain they don’t have enough time to practice and be a proactive parent.
As a parent myself, I completely understand. But just because you can’t do an elaborate ritual every esbat doesn’t mean you don’t have time for a small daily ritual. Even just lighting incense at your altar as an offering to the gods/ancestors is enough to maintain a practice. Spend fifteen minutes a day reading a spiritual book. Or ten minutes writing in your Book of Shadows. Adjust to fit your family’s needs AND your own witchy needs.


5. Magical Meals
One easy, effective way to add magic to your witchlings’ lives is kitchen witchcraft. By adding herbs and
intention to your meals, your kids will literally take the magic into their bodies. This is a very powerful
thing. Also be aware of the magical properties of the foods you feed them. Rosemary infused in soups ensures good memory for tests and overall health. Cinnamon sprinkled over hot chocolate brings success in school and sports. Sugar sweetens the mood (but not too much or they’ll get the sugar crazies!) A glass of orange juice in the morning brightens and motivates kids for the day ahead. You can even include your kids in the kitchen for an extra magical meal!

6. Children’s Altars
If your kids are constantly playing with the items on your altar, why not let them create their own altars?
By giving them a space to put their own sacred objects, you give them an area of play and spiritual practice. Something as simple as a shelf in their room to display their seashells, animal figurines, special stones, and photos of loved ones is a perfect altar for a child and a great way to teach them about the craft.
