Quoting Quiverfull: Discipline, Discipline, Discipline But Keep Your Daughters Unmarried?

quotingquiverfull

by former Vision Forum friend Geoffrey Botkin hawking his newest CD/DVD/book on raising children on Ladies Against Feminism - How To Practice Biblical Discipline.Editor's note: The ladies of Ladies Against Feminism didn't even bother to try and write a review or put into their own words why they endorse this particular item by Botkin. They copied and pasted this right from his website. Odd that there's been no updates for over seven months at his single very adult daughters website Visionary Daughters, no online web tutorials about gilding your outside or what to do when there's no real role for you any longer. Most curious how silent they've been. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Child’s Questions Are Always Rebellion?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl in 1995 from the first issue of No Greater Joy Magazine - Why? But Why?Editor's note: It's pretty sick that the mere question of a child is considered a deficit of character. Some kids are just going to ask why or ask about different things and it has nothing to do with anything remotely like rebellion. I remember that my youngest asked me lots of questions, many that I was forced to answer that I didn't know what the answer was, but I would find out. I always thought that her ability to always turn to me to ask questions was a healthy thing, not a rebellion. There's nothing evil in a child wanting to know things, it's a sign of a healthy lively growing intellect. Please … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Quiverfull Evangelicals so Quick to Physically Discipline Their Children?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we’re going to start running on Thursday evening posts. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life. As I'm sure all of you have seen by now there have been protests, looting and rioting in the city of Baltimore over the death of a young man named Freddie Gray in police custody. One of the stories that has emerged from this tragic situation is that of mother Toya Graham. News cameras caught her slapping, yelling and dragging her 16 year old son Michael away from the violent protests on Monday night. The question of if she was right or wrong to use physical discipline to remove her son from the protest isn't really up for debate here, … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part ten of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: Thankfully this is the last part of Michael's new foreword for his book. The bad news is that this is only part one of two. Expect to see part two up sometime in May. If Mr. Pearl is so interested in Biblical child training how could he miss the part that talks about the father not frustrating the child? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Yelling – The New Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part nine of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: I agree with Michael that yelling is no solution, but spanking is not the answer to yelling. You cannot replace one bad discipline method with another. Plus, I think many parents have been yelling at their kids for a long long time now. It's not a new thing. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Spanking Leads to General Degeneration of Society?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part eight of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: He's claiming that the anti spanking movement cannot prove their claims even as there are many more legitimate scientific studies showing that harming a child to make them behave is bad in the long run. Mr. Pearl ignores facts or blurts out lies about anything that runs counter to his belief.  This seems to be a typical thing to do in the world of Quiverfull and Evangelical Christianity, come up against a study or a fact that doesn't fit with your 'Biblical World View', just call it a lie without legitimately refuting it. … [Read more...]
