about Harry Potter?
As a Christian parent, do you let your children read or watch Harry Potter? What about other movies and books that have "witchcraft" in them? Such as The Little Mermaid or The Secret Garden? ect ect.
If the answer is no (you dont let your children watch it) do you as a parent recognize that there is (usually) a big difference between the 'magic' that is done in the books or in the movies and the religious and spiritual magick that many pagans use? Did you give any thought to this BEFORE the Harry Potter books?
If your answer is yes, (you DO let your children watch it) can you explain your thought process and experinces? Why do you let your children watch it? Have you had any serious disagreemnts about this topic with fellow Christians or with your church? Do you teach your children that magic is not real at all? Did you give any thought to this BEFORE the Harry Potter books?

No, I do not allow my children to watch Harry Potter or any movies containing witchcraft to that degree. I feel it is my responsibility to teach my children biblical morals not a television show. I do believe however that as a Christian parent God does not want us to turn to the world for anything that contradicts his Word. We are supposed to be the leaders of values and morals, when we give in to what they offer we are giving putting them in place spiritually that God did not intend for them to be.
