by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy – Infant Manifesto
Editor’s note: Babies thinking and talking about breaking their parents will before their own first birthday is one of the more twisted things to come from the brain of Michael Pearl. He clearly knows nothing about infant development or needs. This is sick.
Be advised, it just takes one experience. It is best conducted before you are one year old, but it will work at any time. All you have to do is win. That is rule number one; win any contest of wills. Cause them to give up in exasperation. Frustrate their efforts at dominance. Stand your ground, even when you are spanked. Prove to the bullies that when you have your mind made up nothing can change it. Let them know that you will not obey any command you do not think is just. If you ever win just once, then you have broken their wills. Yes, remember, that is the important thing. Break their wills. Take away their confidence. Make them feel helpless. After that, it is easy. If you ever hear her say, “I can’t do a thing with that boy; he just has a strong will,” then you know you have won. Keep it up and you will always be free of control.
Another point to anticipate is that parents go through stages. They may read a book or take advice from a friend and decide to renew their efforts at dominance. Sometimes it can be hard on you for a few days. They will spank more and be impatient, but if you just hold out it will all blow over and things will return to normal. Remember, consistency is the key. If you ever give in just once, it renews their confidence, so if nothing else, seek symbolic victories.
