    Parenting Pagan Groups

    So after having Monster and not wanting to drive you all crazy with questions I decided to look for a Pagan parenting group on Facebook, I'm already in a breastfeeding group and a first time mom group, and while some of the time I find topics and momsee ridiculous overall I have gotten lots of helpful info.

    So I found two ppgs I joined one and I'll be damned if children are mentioned at all. They talk about everything but their kids and how they are raising them. In fact I hardly ever see anything Pagan related ato all, and I know we don't always have Pagan related topics but the least that group could do is talk about their kids every now and then...

    Wow sorry went on a rant. Point of this thread do any of you parents have any Pagan parenting groups you would reccomend. It doesn't always have to be Pagan or kid related but occasionally would be nice.

    TBH, no...most of them are what you describe or really effing flakey in my experience. Especially online. I've had better luck with non-religious/secular/freethough/atheist/agnostic parent groups.

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Thats what I was afraid of. Ok then off the top of your head do you have any groups you would recommend? I will also do my own research.

    This is an australian site but bubhub.com.au was pretty good for me. Lots of info and sensible answers/discussion to all threads I started.

    You could check for a local Unitarian Universalist church and see if they have a Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. If they do, there are likely parents in the group and most are super family friendly. You could also look out for local events. If there is an event, there's a chance you could find out about pagan parenting groups that are going on locally. The small event we go to every year is about four hours from you. They usually have a small kids area for children 3+ where they can play and do crafts. People volunteer on a rotating basis. Those sorts of things are great. Unfortunately I don't really have a lot of advice for online. I think you have me on facebook though. Maybe we could start something?

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.
