Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Anger in Children is Purely Selfishness?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Angry ChildrenEditor's note: Michael seems to be saying here that if you control your child and everything about their environment then the incidents of anger will be lessened. While I agree that teaching children to deal with their emotions and the things that frustrate them is a very important goal it still seems likely that the switch is not too far off in the world of Micheal Pearl child training. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Taking Love Out of Marriages?

quotingquiverfull

by Hunter Wallace at Occidental Dissent as quoted by Nathanael Strickland of Faith & Heritage - Against Love-Based MarriagesEditor's note: So now love between marital partners is wrong? Marrying for love leads to disaster for society at large? Cannot wrap my mind around being married to someone you did not love and sharing the day to day intimacies of marriage without love. Fundamental Christianity really is the craziest of mindsets. This type of thinking must be a factor in why there are higher divorce rates in Evangelicals. … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Angry ChildrenEditor's note: Continuing on from last week's theme of Michael blaming children for selfishness here's his take on anger, a topic he seems to know a little too well.

News: HSLDA’s Newest Defense Case – The Naugler Family

news

Initially wasn't going to post about Kentucky CPS seizing all ten children in the Naugler family since it's been well covered at both Homeschoolers Anonymous and in great depth by Kathryn Brightbill. But.. more and  more comes out each day on this family. The Naugler parents are claiming that they've been targeted by CPS because they practice 'Free Range Parenting' and are 'Unschooling' the children, but that doesn't seem to be why CPS acted. Stories are emerging about things like piles of garbage, human feces and glass being rife on the homestead as well as the photos of the family home, basically a tent top with three stick walls they've lived in even in the cold of winter. Failure to … [Read more...]

Do Not Turn Yourself Inside Out

nora

by Nora Woodhouse cross posted from her blog A Heart Like Mine"Do not turn yourself inside out trying to explain yourself to people who refuse to see you. You know who you are."I really liked this quote; I always seem to find things like this when I really need them. A wave of sadness had hit me yesterday, in part because I was still trying to recover and process from a nightmare the night before. I had this horrible dream Other Child was dying and there was nothing I could do about it. I was at their bedside forced with having to let them go. I think a dream like that is fairly representative of how I am still sorting through my feelings after making the choice to go no contact. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Declining Birth Rates Dooming Children to Huge Future Burdens?

quotingquiverfull

by Shannon Roberts of Mercator.Net - No One is Winning From the World's Lack of Children as renamed and quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Are Your Children Ready For The Future?Editor's note: Is either posting really making a believable point that not increasing the population will harm our children's future? After reading both I'm still not entirely sure what this terrible 'burden' is because of declining birth rates. Typical Evangelical scare tactics to reinforce compliance with extra Biblical rules and submission roles for women, dominance by men. … [Read more...]

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book.

Happy Mother’s Day – Trying Out Motherhood

Image from Buzzfeed Tumblr

So this is sort of off topic and not Quiverfull related at all but in honor of Mother's Day this seemed appropriate to share. The Try Guys of Buzzfeed.com are exploring motherhood as only guys can. Enjoy.Too bad that trying out motherhood like this isn't mandatory in high school because it might just make kids think twice about sex without birth control. One of my children did the Baby Think It Over for three days and nights and by the end was laying in her bed crying that she felt 'so trapped'. The experience taught her that she was not going to be ready for motherhood for quite some time. Not a bad thing to realize. … [Read more...]
