These are just my humble opinions:
Poetry is a very important part of the Wiccan Religion. Read poetry to your children whenever you get a chance. Encourage them to express themselves through poetry.

Music is also such a wonderful part of the Wiccan religion. I try to sing my children's names in little songs that I change or even make up. I'm a terrible singer, but they love my enthusiasm.

Expose your children to art. We're lucky enough to have a great art museum very close to our house. Give your children plenty of opportunities to express themselves through paint, sculpture, etc.

Read to your children. Discuss with them what they read. Get them thinking about what they read.

Cook with your children. They will feel successful and learn a valuable skill. It may take longer and make a bigger mess, but it's well worth it.

Start and continue traditions with your child. This is what they will remember and pass on to your grandchildren. The traditions don't have to be elaborate, just something you'll all enjoy doing together for the Sabbats or other special occassions.

Dance, laugh, sing, play, discover, cuddle, love, read, kiss, wrestle, run, skip, explore, make messes. That's what a Pagan parent can do with their children.

I think by being close to our children we become closer to the Divine. Sharing the Elements with you children, showing them the Full Moon...seeing their wonder and delight can help you feel it too

Other people's thoughts that I liked:
An imaginative child is rarely a lonely child.
Children will forget what you told them, but they won't forget how you made them feel.
Children are a gift from the Goddess. Loving them and taking good care of them is your way to say "Thank you" to her.

Parenting is a trial and error process.

I'm pregnant and I keep wondering what my relationship with my child will be like. Sometimes I even get scared cause I worry that s/he may not like me, but I keep trying to convince myself that I know I can do the best I can to create that connection we all had with either our parents or even a relative when we ourselves were children.
I liked your idea of exposing the children to art, music and books. I, myself, loooove reading so much and enjoy the pleasure it brings me and the way it has always made me feel, how we can travel to both real and imaginarium places. I want to share this with my child and I wish I will be able to also share my love for the God and the Goddess with him/her and I found your idea of creating traditions for the Sabbats and maybe even the Esbats can be very bonding. I can't wait for my child to be born to start experiencing this new stage in my life!

Raising children is always a strange and scary business. Raising children to believe in a religious or spiritual path is difficult and can often raise problems that we, as parents, have no training with which to deal. The key to navigating this situation is to be prepared, and that is what we are going to do today: talk about how to be prepared to deal with the issues that come up when trying to raise pagan kids.
