Have your teenagers ever believed in vampires or witchcraft?

My daughter went through a spell, she would wear dark clothes, and was getting weird books to read from the library. I'm so glad it did not last long!! She was always telling us she was going to put a curse on us. It was really weird.

How did I miss this one? My daughter asked to paint her room purple when she was 16 years old. Because it is my favorite color I allowed her to do so. Well, I thought it was going to be a nice shade of purple, not dark purple. She then thought she was going to paint her ceiling black. No way. It was later that week that I found the books on Witchcraft in her room. It was a phase.

It is really strange. She ran away once and was found at a guys house that said he was a vampire and slept in a casket. It really was strange.

Kids try to shock us by doing things to get our reactions.

My kids do not believe in vampires, they know it as a story because we are Buffy fans and own every season on DVD. Do they believe in witchcraft? Not like the movie portray it...Hollywood has been magick a mis-conception. But they do believe in magic. One, magic is something that one has to believe in for it to exsist. Prime example is Santa Claus. But to go further than that, my older children believe that everything has energy and these energies can effect the energies of other things. Some call this witchcraft but it is nothing like what Hollywood shows. This is when I say, I am Wiccan. So, some things they believe in because it is part of our religion. But no, they know the difference between myth and science. I think a lot of teens are going through those phases more often. And even though it is really weird, I guess it is just something some of them have to go through. But please know, that is not what Wicca or Paganism is about.

I do kno that has nothing to do with Wicca or Paganism. If you ask her about it now, she tells you "I was making deals with the devil." How weird. I'm glad she doesn't believe in that anymore.

My son went through a very brief period where, to impress a girl, he started accepting or being interested perhaps is a better word in witchcraft and wiccans. The hilarious part is the girls who were claiming to be "wiccan" and "witches" and "practicing spells" would go to church and tell him that you could do both. LOL Now I don't know about you but no Christian church I've ever gone to believed in "spells". I think the mere fact that his sisters and I really laughed at his comments about it made him realize that he didn't really take it seriously either. It was short lived and he hasn't mentioned word one since. Of course, the girl is now back to her non spell casting ways! LOL

My oldest daughter was into witches when she was very young. I think it was the 5th grade. One year her birthday fell on the Friday the 13th and she wanted to have a sleep over party. It was kind of creepy. I had about a dozen witches in my house that night. She's not into witchcraft now, but the gothic look is in. LOL I think it's just phases kids go thru.
