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...]

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.

Quoting Quiverfull: Everyone Spanks But Bad Kids Parents Do It Wrong?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - Attack on Traditional Child TrainingEditor's note: It's one of the six times a year when the Pearls publish their magazine and spend large parts of it defending spanking children.

Notice he has no legitimate study to back his assertions in this paragraph.  … [Read more...]

He's also upset that his words are being taken out of context for quotes. Bonus points in the piece for his reference to uneducated 'hillbilly' women.  … [Read more...]
