I was also raised in a CS family, though I think perhaps my lax upbringing does not compare to the others who have posted here. Like most raised in a Christian Science family, I was not immunized and prayer was the go-to remedy for most ailments. However, my family supplemented prayer with things like band-aids, neosporin, Advil, cold medicine, and, albeit rare, doctor visits.
Granted, I didn’t go to the doctor every time I had a nosebleed or stomach ache like it seems a lot of folks do, but I did have my tonsils removed at the age of 12 when I got strep throat for something like the 3rd or 4th time. The first shot I ever received was at this time, and it was also the first time I had prescribed meds (after the procedure). I also wear glasses and have since I was in 4th grade. I had braces for a brief time, and also have had regular dental visits since I was a small child.
My parents did send me to Principia high school. [To answer someone else’s comment, I do believe there’s another CS high school somewhere in CA, but maybe I am remembering wrong?] I attended the boarding school my Freshmen year and part of Sophomore year before transferring to a public high school.
At the age of 16 I finally argued my way out of attending my mother’s church and started attending a very laid back christian church. When I was 17 I stopped attending church altogether with the exception of holidays where I am usually guilted into going by my mother.
I have mixed feelings about CS and find myself defending or at least clarifying a lot of beliefs and misconceptions that others have about the religion. When asked about my upbringing, I usually let people know that my situation was not really a “norm” when it comes to CS, and I consider my upbringing to be very lax.
