by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy – Other Children Changing Your Child’s Destiny
Editor’s note: This is one of those Pearl letters that are sprinkled throughout their advice-giving that seems, hmm, somehow ‘fake’ or made up just for whatever toxic child-beating point the Pearls are currently promoting. In this letter the mother is complaining that her friends with children at church don’t discipline or train their children like she and her husband do. She’s worried that the kids will rub off and influence her children, but doesn’t want to cut off contact like her husband urges. Here’s Debi’s reply, toxic as always:
Your husband is right. Other children will decide your children’s destiny to some degree. This is the reason God tells older women to tell young wives and mothers: “that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed” (Titus 2:4). Learn to trust your man. Also, start ministering to these families by sending us their name and address for a free subscription to our newsletter. God can change them and their children.
