The Scientology Religion Helping Children

Scientology ministers are often called upon to help the child. Children today are not only beset with the problems that have always troubled young people—nightmares, squabbles with friends, difficulties with their studies—but face a whole new host of ills as a consequence of our ailing society. Drugs and sexual abuse steal the happiness of children at an increasingly young age, while gang violence and rampant criminality endanger their lives; and one need only glance at an inner-city school to appreciate just how badly our society has served their welfare.

L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Scientology religion, wrote: "Save the child, and you save the nation." Yet, not only has today’s society sadly neglected children, but even where efforts are made to help, too often it comes to nothing.

Long concerned with the well-being of man’s future, L. Ron Hubbard developed many of techniques to enhance the welfare of a child. As a basic orientation, L. Ron Hubbard points out that the child is not an enfant terrible who must be forcefully molded or broken if he is ever to behave as a responsible adult. Rather, the child must be seen for what he is: a fully aware individual in a body that has not attained full growth, Scientology ministers recognize this fact.

The ill or injured child, and even infants, may be assisted. The young student suffering through his studies will find relief through the application of L. Ron Hubbard’s study technology. The student who cannot get along with his friends can quickly resolve the matter with communication skills learned on a course specifically designed for him. And even very young children may receive auditing.

Possessing all these tools and more, Scientology ministers are well equipped to counsel parents so that their children grow up happy, confident and able. They recognize that the child is often wonderfully sane, that his values and sense of reality are acutely sharp, and if only adults around him would refrain from attempts to manage and fashion him into their image, he will become a fine, successful person.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Help Parents
to Help their Children

Raising children should be a joy. A lot of parents know it can be one of the most rewarding of all human experiences. For those that don’t and struggle with day-to-day problems such as misbehavior, poor grades, drug problems and such, something can be done about it. Volunteer Ministers through the application of Scientology principles can help parents with tools to make bringing their children up the pleasure that it should be. Every parent wants to ensure their children are happy, loving and productive, and that they grow up to become valuable members of society—sometimes you just need the right tools.

“Life with my three kids was a living hell. What happened? Those beautiful babies and cute kids were now out of control monsters. I wondered how it got so bad. I blamed myself. A good friend of mine saw me ‘drowning’ and threw me a lifesaver. It was the phone number of a Volunteer Minister. I called her up. She understood what I was going through and calmly and smoothly helped me put order into my life and got my children taking responsibility for the situation. It wasn’t me against them anymore. We became a team—a family. She gave me a booklet called ‘Children’ and said I’d find the answers to happy children inside it. She was right! Because of this I recovered 3 ‘best friends’ and made another one—a wonderful and caring Volunteer Minister. Thanks for all the love and help!” S.C.

“Becoming a Volunteer Minister has fulfilled my lifelong goal of being able to really help children. It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to bring about change in any child. One instance I recall vividly was helping the parents of a small boy who was an absolute terror to the family, his school and himself. He was out of control and they were in despair. My training as a Volunteer Minister gave me the tools to tackle such a situation. But I wasn’t going to do the job of the parents. Instead, I coached them on exactly what they should do, using the data in the ‘Children’ booklet from my training. Well, the child came straight and the parents now have something they can use to create a happy future for their child and themselves.” A.D.

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
