"It is normal for people to resist interfering in the lives of their adult relatives or friends. In fact, the law states that once people reach the age of majority (usually 18), they are responsible for their actions. However, cult influence impairs an individual's capacity for mature decision-making. Especially at the beginning of the cult involvement, family members and friends know that somethings is wrong. But they often back off when the cult member says, Don't tell me what to do. I am an adult. Don't try to control my life". People don't realize that this is a tactic to neutralize objections.
The fact that a person is of legal age does not mean that he is functioning as a responsible adult. Under hypnosis, a person can be age-regressed to childhood. The individual thinks, feels, and acts like a child."
