Parenting: The Importance of Understanding Dianetics (Part 1)

Dianetics has so many uses within the family. Many have been covered in articles on this site: how to handle injuries, calm and quiet birthing, assists to help moms during pregnancy and after the birth, etc. Yet in some ways this only scratches the surface of the use of this subject.Dianetics includes the use of particular (and very effective) techniques, but it’s more the understanding of people and of the mind that I find I use with others, including my children, on a day to day basis.  Fol … [Read more...]

Why Parent-Child Relationships Go Sour

"I'm driving the tractor, daddy!!"Probably one of the most oft-reiterated themes that you’ll find in various Scientology texts with respect to parenting is the subject of exchange, and the importance of the child being able to contribute back to the family.   One such reference I came across recently was the following: “Parental-child relationships are sour, really, only for one good reason. And that is because the child cannot contribute equally to the parent contributions. This demon … [Read more...]

What Being a Scientology Parent Means to Me

I’m a Scientologist and a parent.  What does that mean?  The answer sums up a lot of why I started this site in the first place.  And although I’ve written over 200 articles on this site so far on the subject, I’ve never actually just summarized what it means to me to be a Scientology Parent. Applying One’s Religion to Life With any religion, there’s a massive difference between simply calling oneself a member of that religion (i.e. “I’m a Scientologist”, “I’m Jewish”, “I’m a Mormon,” etc.), as … [Read more...]

Don’t Bypass Your Child (Part 2)

This is the second of two (perhaps more) posts on the subject of bypassing your children – and in this context, bypassing means to ignore their efforts to help or do work that is theirs, and instead doing it yourself.I realized after writing my last post on the topic that there is so much more that could be written on this, and so many other facets to the issue.   The facet mainly covered in the first post was that the more you bypass them and don’t let them do the work, the more you’re groov … [Read more...]

There is one extremely key aspect of how Scientologists approach parenting which is beautifully depicted in the video for the free on-line Scientology course on Children, available here. Any law that applies to the behaviour of men and women also applies to children. It’s the simple fact that any law that applies to the behaviour of men and women also applies to children.  It’s a datum that becomes more and more profound the more you think about it – and certainly the more you conside … [Read more...]
