Responsibility for Children

A responsible attitude of a parent toward a child would naturally include affording the child the most advanced and efficacious care for his health that the parent is capable of. This is a normal response for all parents; and for the parent who is a Christian Scientist, it would call for the application of this Science to the child's needs. Anything contrary to this procedure would be quite abnormal.

There is a choice available regarding the type of healing method one would follow; and within reasonable regard for the rights and welfare of others as required by the law of the land, each one should be free to follow the healing method of his choice. This is particularly true when this healing method has stood the test of time and experience and has the basic precedent of Christ Jesus' healing and teaching to rest upon.
