When my sister and I were her age we announced to our parents that we were Marxists, as was proper for the time and place. Our parents could have saved themselves a lot of grief by getting us to explain the labour theory of value, or the change from quality into quantity or whatever else. This would not only have been unexpected, it would have meant we would have to learn the stuff, which would have been an education.

I dunno anything about Wicca but I would say to her, great, tell me stuff, were they persecuted as witches by the church, does it have anything to do with the Albigensian crusade, is it connected with matriarchy, and any other matters arising. This might be too much for your kid. But she's 15 did you say? I have a 15yo daughter too. (Help!)

Honestly, I would practise unwavering interest in anything to do with Wicca, that she was prepared to tell me, I mean. It might not go on for as long as you think. And no doubt it's interesting anyway. Since I imagine you're secure in your faith, you can take it as a typical identity challenge from a 15yo.
