No, that’s not the way you raise children

Ron Says…

“…because we discover that when a calm, permissive attitude is taken around a child who has been in bad condition—who has been upset, nervous, and so forth—calm, that doesn’t mean no control. You people who have inherited from psychology the idea that the modern way to do with a child is just to leave them alone and let them run—no, that’s not the way you raise children. You have to put a little bit of control on them, otherwise they get sick. You have to control them with certainty and good 8-C* or they get sick. Remember that.

“And we take this child who has been nervous and upset, and we give this child a little bit greater freedom, a little more participation in the game. We consult with the child as to whether or not it’s all right to go to the show. And sure enough, the child is liable to get kind of discombobulated for a few days, wonder what on earth is going to happen. Something is wrong, see? And they’ll rattle around and then all of a sudden they’ll say, ‘You know, there’s—there’s a little reality about this. They really do want my opinion as to whether or not to go to a show.’ And all of a sudden the kid settles down and becomes a civilized person.”

Since my son has been receiving auditing at Mace Kingsley, my life as a mother really changed. My son is much more calm and mature than before. The tailor-made hatting given to me by Sandy was essential and complemented the auditing. I now duplicate totally my son's universe, and this keys-out both of us.
Since my kids have been receiving auditing this trip I saw them light up! The first day they came back so talkative, so full of energy! I saw them happier and way more affectionate towards my husband and me, telling us how much they love us and giving us hugs and kisses!
Both my husband and I have been amazed at how much more in communication our daughter is with us now! After her Purification Rundown she was so much calmer and easier to be around and has much less drama.
I have noticed that his tone level is higher, he is happier, calmer, more considerate, and more willing and able to do the things he needs to do at home and at school. He seems to be more 'himself'.
Since the first day she loved her auditor and she came happily for session.  I have never seen her as happy as when she got out of session, very talkative and with a lot of energy and willing to be outside in contact with nature.  I realized the sessions brought her to present time and she is more at cause.
