When I first planned to take one of my kids, age six, to Mace-Kingsley for auditing, I wondered what to say to him about why we were going and what we were going to do. I worried about what I would do if he refused to go in the building or if he refused to go into session. I decided to keep it simple, and just say, “we’re going to a place where they help you do better in life.” This was sufficient. From the moment he walked in the door and got the feeling of the place, there was nothing more to say. He loved it!
Fast forward three years. I am standing in line at the airport with both my kids, waiting to check a bag for our flight to Florida to go to Mace-Kingsley for our fourth visit. It is 7am on a Monday morning. The airport is very busy. My kids are so excited to go to Mace-Kingsley for auditing. They decide to start a little cheer in the line, saying, “Auditing, Auditing, Auditing,” stamping their feet and pumping their fists like they are at a sporting event.
When we arrive in Florida there are a few problems. Lost bag, car-rental mix-up, checked into an occupied room at the hotel. I’m cranky and it is 90+ degrees with full humidity and I’m wearing long pants due to the lost bag. No swimsuits for the pool, no pajamas, etc. The kids are so positive! “Don’t worry, Mom, everything will be okay!” “We’ll get the bag back, we don’t need to go to the pool right now, we don’t need pajamas, it’s not that hot, Mom.” Usually I am the one making sure to stay positive so that there are no upsets prior to the auditing. But they were handling me!
That night, they are very focused on getting a good meal and getting to bed. Usually I am the one putting the intention on their getting the right food and the right sleep. They were handling this on their own!
The next morning, they are so excited to get to Mace-Kingsley, after asking for a full breakfast, of course.
So, the answer to the question, “How do I Disseminate Scientology to My Children” would seem to be: “Tell them you are going to a place where they help you do better in life, and your work will be done!”
