Me and my little one on the playground
I wanted to share a bit of what my experiences have been in applying Scientology as a parent.
I have used many of the tools I have learned in Scientology with my children and family. One of these has been such a life-saver to me – simple, yet AMAZING – and it extends from the fact that a huge part of Scientology is learning to understand what real communication is – and then how to communicate effectively.
When my kids are upset, crying, yelling, or just not doing well, instead of glibly responding to them, I try to really listen and UNDERSTAND what they are saying before I respond back. This has made such a big difference in my communication with my children. I have two very active boys and as a rule they get into upsets and scraps often, but I find when I actually take the time to really understand what they are communicating to me, it makes a huge difference. They know that I care about them, and that their communications are important to me.
I consider Scientology to be the ultimate guidebook on pretty much any area of my life that I would like to improve. I’m so grateful to be a Scientologist.
