We are the Children of Scientology

Welcome! We’re SO glad you’re here!


Describing Scientology isn’t an easy task….for a number of reasons, even for us. We’re still trying to find REAL language for what it is and what we experienced. This has not been easy, but it has been worthwhile. 

This is OUR place to create commUNITY and have dialog. We will ask hard questions, share real stories, and try to understand & heal through it together. We also hope to create advocacy & collect allies. As we put words to our experience, we hope to help educate others.  


Isolation our greatest enemy. That ends now.

What exactly is a CHILD of Scientology?

Good question. First of all Scientology is Something We Didn’t Choose For Ourselves, We Were Born or raised in it. You Might Say We’re A Scientology Science Experiment If You Will.  We realize we Have A Lot To Learn, And also A Lot To say about it.  Whether We Like It Or Not, We’re Kinda The Perfect Specimens Of What Happens When kids Are Provided No Other Tools Or Means Of Support Apart From  Scientology As They Develop, And The Long Term Effects Of This.

(Yep, we have our own lingo: Scientologese)

To help with words & terms here’s a  simple cheat sheet for you put together by our sister site.




More complicated, lengthy version, full of hidden meanings, large concepts, strategic euphemisms, nuanced phrases, commands, and oodles of THREATS – ALL all used to guide our fragile young developing minds, keep us isolated, and MOST of all, to hold us in place. We consider it our native language since we were bottle fed it – in place of real words – and it’s pretty hard to kick it, but we do try, since we know now, language has REAL power.   


( we get a LOT of questions...and they're ALL good)

Here are just a few

from our incredible trailblazing sister site
