TTUAC: Bad Attitudes Are a Disease

pouting-child2

To Train Up A Child, chapter 13, part 3 Today we finish the chapter on "attitude training." WHY IS EVERYBODY ALWAYS PICKING ON ME? While I teach a Bible class, my two daughters help baby-sit a house full of children under five (five children under five is a house full). One of the mothers returned to find her three-year-old daughter whining of being mistreated by a little fellow under two. They all confirmed that the stumbling toddler had in fact provoked a class-A-altercation without … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: Sexual Sins as Far as the Eye Can See

woman-sitting-on-a-basket-with-head-in-hands

By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need A Help Meet, pp. 159---161 Last post we talked about the basics of a wife's spots, wrinkles and blemishes. The next few sections will be delving deeper into each of these. Today we're talking about spots. More specifically, the spots that one's wife has picked up because of sexual impurities. I hope you're ready for a big bucket of bananas, because that's what's being served up today! I apologize if this post is a bit … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: “He will be your head, and you will follow him”

1200X800-Homeschool-Kid-Sing-My-Song

Created To Need His Help Meet, pp. 229---231 We now begin Debi's chapter on being obedient to one's husband. In this first section, Debi mainly just quotes Bible verses, and then interprets them for her readers. In this post I'll touch on some issues of interpretation, but I'll also bring out some other pieces that come up, including a passage that sheds light on Debi's view of the role of daughters, and more on Michael's view of church authority. Debi begins with a definition: Obedient: … [Read more...]

TTUAC: If Your Child Is Roughed-Up, Rejoice!

stopbullying

To Train Up A Child, chapter 13, part 2 In this post, we continue Michael's chapter on "attitude training." Trigger warning for bullying victims, because if it wasn't painfully obvious from the title, Michael's about to go there. PARENTAL PROTOTYPES Never expect more of your children in the way of attitude than you are yourself. Happy, well balanced parents who neglect the rod and reproof will have grouchy, complaining, tantrum-oriented children. But, in a situation where one or both of … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: Everything That Is Wrong With Your Wife

dirty

By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need A Help Meet, pp. 158---159 Last post I was rather in shock because I agreed with Michael the entire section. Well, not to worry because he's back to his old self in this section. There's a heavy dose of "what's wrong with the woman" and everyone's favourite scripture passage. And by everyone's, I mean Michael's. Here we go! Spots, Wrinkles, and Blemishes The ministry of Christ to his bride is that of removing spots, … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Be Entrepreneurs . . . but only at Home!

woman-working-from-home

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 220---227 In this passage we turn back to women and work, and Proverbs 31. Men value hardworking women who are eager to learn how to do new things. No man wants to be saddled with a slow, incompetent wife. I have often heard my sons and their friends talking about what they wanted in a wife. They all agreed that they did not want to marry "a maintenance chick." No young man wants to marry "a lazy, visiting, 'gotta eat out' gal." All men agree on this one … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: Wow! Michael Is Right!

arguing-couple2

By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need A Help Meet, pp. 157---158 Today is a super-short section. It's super short for two reasons: one, because I'm in the middle of a marathon of "Call the Midwives" on Netflix. Two, because I'm dying of shock. Michael makes a good point, and lets it be. He doesn't surround it with toxic nonsense. He doesn't blame the woman. He doesn't name call. He doesn't even boast. Just straight-forward, good advice---albeit centered in … [Read more...]
