Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh

Hello everyone :)

I am a Sikh girl living in Europe and i wanna tie Dastaar, but i don't know how to tell my parents about this, because nobody in my family is wearing turban and I don't know if they are cool with it.

Almost a year ago I started learning Gurmukhi and about Sikhi in generall and now I'm learning Path and Kirtan.

Now I'm not ready for taking Amrit, it's a big descision and responsibility. Sikhi is a way of life so I wanna go it step by step.

How well do you get on with your Mum ? if you are close share what you have learnt about sikhi with her , maybe show her sikh websites/channels you follow , tell how you feel about sikhi , I'm sure she'll understand you are not going through a phase and support you. It might not be her cup of tea but she should be able to empathise wanting to be a better sikh (most women are spiritually inspired  very few are not) . Get her on board first  , then tackle dad ...  Of course if you get on better with Dad go the other way around , most people want their kids to be good humans so I really cannot see them being so hard on you . Keep on touch ... stay in Chardi Kala

Bro look at her age, she needs her folks behind her not kalesh ...so what is the harm in sharing what she has learnt what she feels now , maybe Guru ji will do kirpa on them too ...

I knw it might sound a bit weird for someone in whose family it is a normal thing to tie a turban.But for me it's a big issue and i'm happy tht u understand my problem

Yeah I already showed my mom some vids of BoS or some Sikh bloggers and I think it's a good methode to tell her about my interests.

Thx for ur advice
