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: 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: Part 6 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in the Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Whew, finally the end and it's all Michael doubling down on his message of control everything you expose your children to and homeschool them.  Don't forget to put on the full armor of God too! The question all of this brings up to my mind is has the church really changed that much in the last thirty years beyond the rock and roll worship music, fancy lights and technology? I'm not sure it has. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ and Explaining Bestiality in Church?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Now Michael aims for the trite cliched Christian answer. Not only control every moment of those childrens lives, you must put on the imaginary armor of God. Followed by parent-blaming if the children don't turn out as obedient little moral robots. Michael, like Debi, never misses any opportunity to belittle or shame others. … [Read more...]

News: More Allegations on the Justin Harris Rehoming Adopted Children Situation

news

More from Arkansas Matters.com . What follows below is a jaw dropping list of various allegations. After reading this please consider signing the Change.org petition calling for Justin Harris to step down from his political seat - Resign For Your Actions In Re-Homing Your Adoptive Daughters. Why isn't the State of Arkansas charging Justin and Marsha Harris with child abuse in the role of rehoming the girls and their treatment of the girls witnessed by the babysitter?

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. Turns out Michael is adding new material and chapters to his tome 'To Train Up A Child' for the 21st anniversary addition. It looks like a lot of self-justification via studies on child discipline. Notice he has no legitimate study to back his assertions in this paragraph.  … [Read more...]
