Do you Allow Children in Your Circles?

Over the years, Yarrow Coven has come to realize the value of including coven children in our activities. There are, of course, holidays and other activities that are inappropriate for small children and we discourage their attendance. However, all children who have been raised as a pagan and whose parents are coven members can fully participate in our celebrations. Small children, rather than always being a distraction add an energy to ritual that is different from adult energy. They also see and feel things that we often take for granted. The question we ask ourselves is: “What kind of religion is it that would exclude its children?”
