Interviews with Scientologist families from all around the world.

Parenting is an adventure, and as far as I’ve observed, no parent goes into parenting totally prepared for the challenges, and the utter joy they’re in for as a parent.   Any parent deserves to be as fully-armed as they can be with tools they can use to make the best of the challenges they’ll face as a parent, to the end of being able to raise happy, healthy children – and be happy, healthy parents at the end of it too!

The following are interviews with Scientologist parents from around the world, giving their views on how their beliefs have affected their experience as a parent and as a family member.
