Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Promotes Child Abuse?

Quoting Quiverfull: Lori Alexander Promotes Child Abuse? May 25, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Childish Nature

Editor’s note: Lori Alexander, one of the ladies at Ladies Against Feminism, has come out in favor of Michael Pearl’s version of child abuse. She’s writing a series promoting Pearl’s book ‘To Train Up A Child’. She never uses the words ‘rod’, only once using the relatively benign word ‘spanking’ while engaging in the type of coded language double-speak most who abuse their children in quiverfull use. Disgusting and perverted. Thankfully the Alexanders no longer have young children to abuse in this manner!

As babies grow older, they find ways to subtly manipulate their mother’s tender heart. There are mothers who have their two years old child sleeping in bed with them since this is where the child wants to be. If they never train this child to sleep in their own bed while they are young, they will want to sleep with the parents for years. {Now, if the father is good with this, then it is okay.} You must train your children as soon as possible to do what you want them to do; not allow them to control you with their crying or temper tantrums. Yes, they will use crying to try to get what they want as they get older. They will continue to want to satisfy their fleshly lusts but this is where you must be diligent to teach them that the world does not revolve around them. As the child gets older, say from eight to twelve months, the adults in his life begin to recognize some of the child’s behavior as selfishness and respond by paying less attention to his demands.*

Ken and I wanted to raise obedient children. We knew it would take a lot of work to change their fleshly wants to godly ones. Most parents wait too long to begin the training. They think it’s cute when a two year old is pouting and stomping their feet, but it’s not cute when they are a seven year old. Women who have done this then turn around and try to convince me that spanking doesn’t work. We dealt with every behavior that wasn’t good the first time our children misbehaved. We never laughed at misbehavior, but took it seriously. We steered them towards doing what is right, instead of feeding their fleshly lusts. The world is a powerful, unrelenting undertow pulling children to destruction. Looking at statistics alone, the probability is overwhelmingly against their moral survival. The training you give and the wisdom you impart can make all the difference in the outcome.*
