Book Review
The Scientology Handbook by L. Ron Hubbard, Church of Scientology

This book has several sections which I have found invaluable in terms of handling my children. The chapter called "Children" has a ton of data on how exactly to handle children and what kinds of things to avoid doing, and why. I have found this to be extremely helpful for me. I have six kids, so it is really important to me to be able to really handle my job as a parent well.
So far, so good. Using this data has helped me to make good decisions in parenting, and I have been able to avoid so many of the pitfalls other parents fall into.

It is by far the best information on child-rearing out there, and can be used by parents from all different cultures and points of view.

The section on assists (actions taken to help people who are ill, upset, or have been injured) is likewise invaluable. My older kids have learned how to give assists to others, and they really know what to do now when someone has been hurt! Which, I don't need to tell any experienced parents out there), is a very common occurrence when you're surrounded by toddlers and preschoolers.

If one of my children gets upset, I know what to do. If one has a nightmare and wakes up still upset and can't get over it right away, I know what to do. If a child gets ill, I of course take him or her to the doctor, but after that, I can take further steps to help him heal his body, and all that is fully described in this book.

I think this book is a lifesaver for parents, and I highly, highly recommend it.
