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.

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Another Michael Pearl Small Survey Sample Pro Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part seven of his new foreword for his book “To Train Up A Child” – Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: I believe that Michael is referring to his appearance on the Anderson Cooper show on CNN about three years ago. Video of his appearance here, here and here.  This was in the aftermath of the deaths of Hana Grace Williams and Lydia Shatz, both disciplined to death by their families using Mr. Pearl's methods. Both homes had well worn copies of "To Train Up A Child" yet Michael denies his teachings had anything to do with their deaths. Michael went all the day to NYC to appear on the show of someone he would consider a 'sodomite' to defe … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Spanking Doesn’t Create Criminals?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy in part five of his new foreword for his book "To Train Up A Child" - Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: So what does Michael do to disprove all those studies that claim hitting your children increases their tendency towards violence and possible criminal behavior? Does he compile the studies of others to refute it? Does he look at statistics and crunch the numbers? Nope, he goes to his prison ministry group, the bunch of guys that would do or say anything to please him and get possible brownie points/ time shaved off their sentences, his captive audience, and he polls them. He comes to a conclusion after a tiny sampling of data! He … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: All Anti-Spanking Studies Only Study Bad Kids?

quotingquiverfull

This is part four of Michael Pearl's updated foreword to his book "To Train Up A Child" from No Greater Joy - Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: Now Michael goes on to claim that you cannot find cases of abuse in Christian homeschooled children who are spanked followed by saying in the studies that support no spanking that the representative sampling is all among juvenile delinquents. What about Hana Grace Williams? What about Lydia Shatz? What about the countless others that don't make it into the news but are surely being abused by the letter of Pearl's awful book? If his book is such a great resource for parenting then why exactly has it been found in homeschooling … [Read more...]

This is part 3 of Michael Pearl's new foreword for his book "To Train Up A Child" from No Greater Joy - Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: If or when America goes to war again they should get Michael Pearl to write all of the pro war propaganda to sell the war to the people. He's got blaming, shaming and fear-mongering down to a science.

Quoting Quiverfull – Pooping Out Drugged Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: Michael seems to think that beating your children into submission means they will not develop any sort of mental illness or depression as a child. That runs counter to what we've seen in the survivor groups.  We have seen too many times in the homeschool alumni groups that harsh, blame the child discipline tends to create depression in children even into adulthood. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Biblical Spanking?

quotingquiverfull

by Chip Ingram of Living On The Edge.Org and Focus On The Family - The Biblical Approach to Spanking Editor's note: While Chip's seven steps in the process to spanking are mostly good parenting I have to question if adding spanking to the rest of it is really necessary. Aren't there better ways to punish that hitting your child? Very surprised to hear Ingram approve of spanking as he seems in the sermons I've heard to be a bit more progressive than the average Fundi-Gelical pastor. … [Read more...]
