For Leah Remini, leaving the Church of Scientology wasn’t an easy decision to make, but she says it was something she had to do for her 9-year-old daughter, Sofia.

Remini opened up to Buzzfeed about her decision to ditch the Church, and how her life has changed since.

“[Sofia] was getting to the age where the acclimation into the Church would have to start,” Remini explained, revealing that the Church begins questioning children in a sort of audit process during at that age.

The “King of Queens” star recalled her own experiences growing up in the Church of Scientology and began to question whether or not she wanted her daughter to have the same experiences.

“I started thinking of my own childhood and how I grew up resenting my mother because she was never home,” Remini told Buzzfeed. “It’s funny; somehow my father, the guy who left his kids and never paid child support, was excluded from my resentment and I grew up resenting my mother for not being home to make food, like all my friends’ moms were. But my mom thought she was doing something good; she thought she was helping the planet. That’s what the Church tells you.”
