Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Michael Pearl Defending His Strawman?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Spank and Save a ChildEditor's  note: So now Michael finally cites some verifiable sources, but it is only to claim it's his right as a parent to spank and that his types of beatings are not abusive like most other folks. Just because you call a pig a princess doesn't mean that it's wearing a crown and not in a barnyard. Everyone else can clearly see that the poor pig holds none of the attributes of royalty and that it's likely still coated in mud from the sty. It just means you cannot clearly see what is before you. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Michael Pearl Defending His Strawman?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Spank and Save a ChildEditor's note: Really, Michael? You're making assertions again without any legitimate evidence cited? No studies named? No links to studies, just the names of a few children's psychologists who said things about how spanking isn't that bad? If this is how you're going to defend yourself in that rumored law suit you're going to have a hard time winning. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 Michael Pearl Answers Parenting Questions?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl and the assorted poor saps that wrote him on No Greater Joy - SINFUL SensitivityEditor's note: One of the few times when Michael doesn't advise creaming the snot out a kid with a plumbing line. What do you think of the letter, is it another suspiciously Pearl-like letter meant to push extra sales of "To Train Up A Child" or a genuine plea for help? His use of the term 'ghetto brat' is horrifying. My first question would be why on earth this mama is allowing her barely two year old baby to be in the company of a three year old without any adult supervision of either. Of course Michael doesn't ask that question. Shaming, blaming and name-calling is easier. … [Read more...]

Review Part 2 – “Spanking, Why, When, How” by Roy Lessin

spanking

Continued on from yesterday here are the words of others that have been raised using this method from Roy Lessin's books. My life has been full of pain and anguish due to Roy's methods. Your daughter is happy because children will be whatever you ask them to be after hitting them. I would have thought someone strange for telling me my parents were cruel too when I was six, twelve, or even 15 years of age. My parents were my world when I was a kid. The horrible affects of Roy's spankings will probably not show up until it is too late. You will have already made your parental choice and the damage will be done. I was a happy child or so everyone thought. Inside I was torn up and didn't really … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Spanking Is One Of The First Resorts?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - Spank as a Last ResortEditor's note: So there was no August version of NGJ magazine, they went straight to Sept/Oct. The passage below has the explanations of the types of rebellious stubborn children and the provoking questions you should ask before wailing on them with a plumbing line. Wonder which interviewer Michael is throwing serious shade at by calling them a 'media agitator'?  There needs to be more 'media agitators' exposing the harmful child discipline ideas of the Pearls. Roaches hate it when the lights come on. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Michael Pearl’s Parenting Methods In Action?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Child Training Marathon Revisited and UpdatedEditor's note: So now we've had Michael saying you should stop every two minutes to spank your child for crying while you are driving down the road. Sounds like the most miserable car ride you could experience this side of explosive diarrhea and swarms of biting fleas invading the car.  And spank and spank and spank and spank and don't you cry while I'm spanking you for crying...how is this not child abuse? … [Read more...]

“How To Win Over Depression” review: 212 – 241

Howtowinoverdepression

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The DragonsTo be honest, if Tim had stopped writing the chapter on how to help your depressed child at page 216, I wouldn’t have a single problem with anything he says in this single, solitary chapter. His first bits of advice are:Give your children a lot of love and affection. Accept them. Avoid anger in the home. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Bible Makes Child Training Perfect?

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. If Mr. Pearl is so interested in Biblical child training how could he miss the part that talks about the father not frustrating the child? … [Read more...]

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: 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...]
