From Scientology Parent–Dealing With Toddler Injuries

Fortunately or unfortunately, my daughter is following in her father’s footsteps and is becoming an avid jumper.   On some jumps, she sticks the landing – like in the image above from the Children’s Museum of Manhattan.  On some other jumps…not so much.The other night, My daughter was demanding I take pictures with “Daddy’s Camera” of her taking flying leaps off the couch.  So, I set up to do so, and she takes a few bounces and leaps off the couch and full-on belly flops on the floor, hard. … [Read more...]

It’s So Flippin Hot

It’s 100 degrees in LA today and it’s “flippin hot,” as a friend of mine would say.This friend is very cute—the way her statements of dislike and upset are peppered with the word “flippin.”  Growing up in South Africa she was raised to be very “proper.”   I find it quaint and adorable.I, on the other hand, was part of the American late-60s iconoclast generation and embraced and reveled in using real curse words as a form of “liberation.”I certainly never anticipated what that trend would le … [Read more...]

My Thoughts on 9/11

I grew up in New York and left home before the World Trade Center was built.  It was not as much a part of my life and heritage as, say, the Empire State Building or the Chrysler Building, or Times Square.But the thought that this could happen here was so bizarre, so surreal, I felt I was in a parallel universe when I saw that huge jetliner fly into the building.My first thought was – Oh my God!  How could a jet be flying so low?  It never even occurred to me it was an act of terrorism.  That … [Read more...]

Dianetics Explains Reason for Silent Birth

L. Ron Hubbard wrote in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, In May, 1950, that expectant mothers should be extremely gentle on themselves during pregnancy. He also advocated that people assisting a woman giving birth maintain silence during delivery. “So a child should have a very quiet prenatal period, and should have a silent, as painless as possible, birth.,” and, “the delivery itself should carry as little anesthetic as possible, be as calm and no-talk as possible.” Mr. Hubbard al … [Read more...]
