Scientology/Spanking children.


Is there any need to spank a child? Is there any reason for the greater good for the greatest number of the dynamics?

Corporal punishment is seldom useful, necessary, or a good idea.

The only time it would seem appropriate would be to warn a child off of something that is an immediate threat to survival.  It creates engrams to run out - but an engram is less non-survival than a dead child.

Part of your ethics presence with a young child is that you can get angry.  That is usually enough.  Your anger - that withdrawal of affinity - is a big wakeup call usually.  But only if it is sincere, and RARE.

I am able to answer questions regarding Scientology practices and procedures, religious philosophy, donations, religious rites, management, administrative and staff matters.


I am a second generation Scientologist whose parents began in Dianetics in 1950 and studied directly with L. Ron Hubbard. I have been personally active in the church for nearly 50 years, have eleven years former staff experience in both technical and administrative areas, and extensive technical and administative training and counseling. I am "clear" and "OT." I come from an extended family of many religions, but my spouse and children are Scientologists, as are my siblings and their spouses, several cousins, nieces, nephews, an aunt, and an uncle. Between us we have had every good and bad experience one might go through in the church at every level.
