As a baby Suri was breastfed and given a mixture of barley water, milk and corn syrup which Hubbard says is healthier than formula and breast milk. She doesn’t take Scientology classes yet, but everyone around her is a Scientologist, even her nannies.
“Tom doesn’t like associating with people who aren’t Scientologists,” says an insider.
Surprisingly (not really), Tom and Katie don’t say no to Suri:
“It’s all about being positive and supportive,” says the couple’s friend Hubbard advised parents to “try to be the child’s friend.”
But in the long run, “How a parent disciplines their child is left up to the parent.”
A close family friend says: “Suri pretty much does whatever she wants, whenever she wants. If she fusses before bed, they let her stay up later. If they want her to go swimming and she cries, they’ll take her out. If she whines about food, they’ll ask her what else she wants to eat. They always want to please her.”
