Title: Questions for Entering the Beginning Class
Post by: EclipseQueen on February 19, 2019, 03:50:49 pm
I am 22 and I'm a dependant with my mother. I want to take the beginner class but I need her permission and right now she and I are not on speaking terms. She's never had a problem with me practicing my religion but due to how tense the situation is right now I don't trust her. My father is very supportive of my studies but he is not living with us right now. What do I need to do to take the beginner class in my current situation?

Em Hotep!

I'm sorry to hear about the current tensions. As far to my knowledge the application would only need parental consent if under a certain age ( 18).  However, I could be mistaken.

I hope things go smoothly for you, and welcome!

Parental is needed so long as you’re financially dependent.

There’s no real way around that.  But also no rush.

Tbh, I would be patient, and hope that this situation resolves and you can get parental permission.

However, it may also be worth emailing Dr. Siuda/Hemet and explaining your situation in as much detail as you feel comfortable doing. I don't personally believe it will change anything, but I do think that adults being restricted from exercising personal autonomy (particularly if there are other factors in play causing that), is something Hemet should at least be made aware is happening. Ultimately Hemet's autonomy also matters here, but I think it's good if people who are in your situation make her aware so that she has all the facts.
