Chapter 11 » 11.14

Membership of children

When membership is sought by or on behalf of a child, the views of both the child (as far as possible) and those with parental responsibility must be explored. Parents should try to recognise that their child may quite properly choose, in the light of the child’s own temperament and experience, a way different from the one chosen on her or his behalf, even if that way lies outside the Society. Children, for their part, may recognise that any choice made for them will reflect the temperament and experience of their parents. (See 11.15.)
