Such wonderful replies to my thread!
It makes sense to me to let one's children make such an important decision (or any life-changing decision of importance) once they are legally an adult. Only then can they make the decision based upon information garnered through life skills, education, and their wants and desires.
I do not agree with the regging actions put into place. The deceit and lies are morally wrong and go against the Code of Honor (both LRH's version and my own personal code).
But I still am curious as to why anyone might not voice their opinions or their observations concerning the SO to their children. Must be the Ronbot phenonema where Scn word is taken as gospel.
Because the child, usually being innocent, may tell someone in the org about the parent considerations re the SO and that someone will notify - it is a duty to do so - the right terminal ( usually via a KR ) and the parent will end up in ethics which is a pain in the a....... neck.
When my daughter signed her SO contract ( after I told them repeatedly not to try and recruit her until she was of legal age ) and told me about it, one of the things I told her was that it was silly. She should have signed it when she was ready to actually join.
She told a staff member that I said that what she did was stupid and I was accused of counter intentions= CI and was assigned to ethics . I was on staff then and it was such a pain because it meant I had to spend more time in the org and even less time with my family.
