Quoting Quiverfull: Pampering Your Child is Not Love?

by J.C. Ryle from his book Training Children: It Starts With Love as quoted by Kelly Crawford of Generation CedarEditor's note: Why is it that every time some Quiverfull cultural enforcer or speaker starts talking of training children that they immediately demonize the child, such as Voddie Baucham did yesterday in R.L.
