In 2002 Stephen Baskerville wrote "The Truth about Child Abuse," in which he claimed that judges and courts grant women access to no-fault divorce in an effort to remove fathers from the home and thereby create situations where child abuse is more likely to occur in order to make work for government bureaucracy. In 2004, Baskerville wrote "Could Your Children Be Given To "Gay" Parents?" in which he argued that the government uses child abuse as a pretense to take children from loving … [Read more...]

I don't know how I missed this short post on the No Greater Joy website a year ago, but I did.

OBEDIENCE TRAINING---BITING BABIESOne particularly painful experience of nursing mothers is the biting baby. My wife did not waste time finding a cure. When the baby bit, she pulled hair (an alternative has to be sought for baldheaded babies). Understand, the baby is not being punished, just conditioned. A baby learns not … [Read more...]
