Let’s play a little game, shall we?
Close your eyes. Now imagine you are three years old. Standing, sitting or on someone’s lap, I don’t mind.
Ready? Now that you are there I have something I have to tell you. Have a bit of bad news, actually. You can’t have auditing for the next ten years.
There. How’s that feel? Lousy? Depressed? Does it make you mad? Well, how do you think your kid feels? However, you’d be amazed at the amount of times I hear – “The kids are fine. They are going to school, doing their thing. Why should they go in session? Let’s wait until they are a bit older.” But if you were a kid how would you feel, watching your parents and others go in session, feeling locked away from the gains, out of the loop…
I hear this too: “They don’t know what they are missing.” Baloney!! I’ve worked with hundreds if not thousands of kids over the years, and you know something? Almost every toddler I’ve ever run into recognizes LRH. They generally point to his picture and say “Ron!” Don’t tell me they don’t know.
So what happens when you deny your kids auditing? Well, LRH says in Keeping Scientology Working:
“The only thing you can be upbraided for by students or pcs is ‘no results’. Trouble spots occur only where there are ‘no results’. Attacks from governments or monopolies occur only where there are ‘no results’ or ‘bad results’. “Therefore the road before Scientology is clear and its ultimate success is assured if the technology is applied.”
So the rule is simple. Deny the kids auditing, deny the kids the tech for whatever reason and you get – trouble. And if you wait, by the time you do offer them the tech, very often they won’t want it anymore. They will say, “Nah, who cares about that stupid stuff? I never really wanted it anyways. I got more important stuff to do, like hang with my buddies playing Halo or listening to my MP3.”
I know that there is a group agreement out there that times are scary and a bit tough, belts need to be tightened, priorities rearranged. Just do me one little favor.
Don’t put your kids’ Bridge on the back burner. Don’t deny your kids the tech.
Or maybe one day you’ll wake up and your kids won’t want Scientology anymore. Whew. Isn’t that the scariest thought of all?
