I just had a mental image of kurama being the patron god of children. Like, if you wanted a child, you'd go to this huge fox statue/shrine with little kits around its feet and wished for kids. There would be festivals and holidays for this patron god. Hmm maybe people who are abusive towards their children mysteriously end up gone, and the children whisked away to loving families.
