Don't Break that Kid

So many kids are prescribed drugs because of behavior problems. Today, when there are more and more single-parent households, and where even more traditional families usually have both parents working, what can a mother or father do to help his or her child with discipline problems?

In the Scientology Handbook there is a section titled "How to Live With Children," in which L. Ron Hubbard stated:

"The main consideration in raising children is the problem of training them without breaking them. You want to raise your child in such a way that you don’t have to control him, so that he will be in full possession of himself at all times. Upon that depends his good behavior, his health, his sanity."

It's easy enough to say that, but how do you actually bring it about?

To do anything in life required a understanding and skill. You wouldn't think of trying to drive a car without learning what each of the various systems did or you'd step on the gas instead of the break and end up a casualty before you even got started.

But where's the the parent's "owners manual"?

Well, if you understood life better, and if you understood why people react, when they do, wouldn't that help you with your kid as well?

The basic books and lectures of Scientology and Dianetics (released in June by David Miscavige), cover all the fundamentals a parent needs

A good, stable adult with love and tolerance in his heart is about the best therapy a child can have.~~~L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Scientology religion
