FAMILY FINDS HOPE WITH DIANETICS
Families with handicapped children have new hope for solving the problems of emotional stress and strain that come to a family following the birth of a handicapped child.
Los Angeles parents Shirley and Steve Young say they found the solution to raising a handicapped son in the book “Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.”
“Our son was born with deformity of his lower limbs,” says Shirley. “It was necessary for the doctors to amputate both legs just below the knees so that Eric could later be fitted with artificial limbs that would give him a chance for a normal life.”
Their son’s condition proved a shock to both mother and father.
“Eric was our first child,” she says. “I think every mother faces the fear that her child may be born with a handicap, but you think it will never happen to you.”
“When it does it puts enormous stress on the family. Corrective surgery is very costly. You have to see that your child gets the special attention that he needs, not only professional attention, but additional caring from the parents,” she says.
The couple’s relationship as husband and wife also suffered for a while, says Shirley and Steve.
“We would find ourselves arguing with one another about what was the best thing to do for Eric,” says Steve. “Everyone says they have the answer, but they all tell you that your baby will never really grow up to be a normal, well adjusted child because of his handicap. When you hear that, it hurts you as a parent.”
Both parents, however, refused to accept what they called “a lot of misinformation about children and about the mind.”
“We had both read the book ‘Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health’ and we knew that a person’s physical condition did not in any way influence his mental condition,” says Mrs. Young. “It is quite the other way around.”
Throughout the time her son was being fitted with artificial limbs, the couple applied Dianetics technology both to the baby and to themselves as a family.
“It made our relationship with one another even stronger. It helped us raise our son so that he was free from all the false considerations that counselors and psychologists try to force on handicapped children and their parents.”
As a result, Eric is happy, healthy, well adjusted boy today. He runs, swims and plays baseball.
“He even climbs trees,” says his somewhat chagrined mother. “I have the same worries that any mother has over a rambunctious six year old.”
“Dianetics was really the solution,” she says. “I tell any mother with a handicapped child to read the book. It opens the door to solving all the problems that psychologists don’t have answers for.”
