Befriend a witch?

Would you be friends with someone you know is Wiccan? Would you prevent your kids from playing with their kids? Someone at the school found out we are Wiccan and now a lot of kids are not allowed to play with my kid anymore and my kid is heart broken. I went to the weekly school announcements day at school last week, and walked up to a group of moms I have become friendly with lately. I said hi to them and was met with complete silence. So after standing there awkwardly for a few minutes being ignored, I finally walked away.

I really liked this school and don't want to have to change schools, but I am starting to feel like my child will never be accepted there now that we have been outed. We were outed around Christmas, and gradually more and more parents avoid us. It is now to the point where no one except for school employees will talk to our family. My child's teacher said it isn't a problem in the classroom, but my child is left completely alone at lunch and recess.

I am heart broken.

We teach our child to be accepting of the differences between people. I just wish other parents were more open minded. :-(

I'm so sorry. Fear of this kind of treatment is why we are mostly in the broom closet IRL. I don't know what to tell you advice-wise. *hugs*

There is nothing wrong with wiccan. People just tend to be more narrow minded when it comes to religions outside of their beliefs.

Yes I would and no I wouldn't, in that order.
I don't care what your religion is as long as you keep it out of my face.

I'm sorry people are so close minded. I'm Wiccan as well and that is one of the things I fear for my daughter when she starts school. Maybe put your child in some after school
Clubs to make friends?

I would let my kids play, we are not, Wiccan, but I want my kids to understand that not everyone is going to be just like them.

I do have friends that are Wiccan so of course I'd be okay with it.
