Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Allow Any Emotional Moments?

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Allow Any Emotional Moments? August 26, 2013

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? – Q & A Answers Part 2

How do you deal with (1) whining/complaining, (2) arguing with parental directions, (3) poor attiudes (sulking, etc.) in response to chores, food, parental decisions, etc., (4) tantrums.

 

All of the above are a lot easier to avoid, than to deal with. We do not permit whining, complaining, arguing, sulking, tantrums, sibling fighting, rudeness, etc. We avoid them by teaching why such attitudes and behaviors are wrong, and then punishing them if they occur. As a result, these episodes are few and far between, to the betterment of every member of the family.
