In a word, yes. There are two types of minors: Coven children and non-coven children. Coven children are considered an integral part of our rituals and celebrations, however, not considered voting members of the Coven until after they reach maturity and only after a coming of age ritual and initiation into the coven. Non-coven children are another matter. It is our belief that children must respect the wishes of their parents when it comes to actively studying and participating in Pagan circles. We would ask the same of our children in return. Thus, any member seeking membership or inquiring with the Coven about study groups or open circles that is a minor, must have parental approval prior to any continued work with Yarrow.
