Quoting Quiverfull: Great Reward Earned by Disciplining Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Shalom Pearl Brand from No Greater Joy - Great RewardEditor's note: You know what Shalom is referring to when she uses the word 'mold' when she's talking about training her children? It's a more polite way to refer to using physical force to compel obedience, breaking their spirits. It was done to her and now she's doing it to her children, the cycle of abuse continues, albeit nicely worded now. Giving ugly things newer safer-sounding names doesn't make them any less awful. … [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 – 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.
