by Michael Pearl and Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Training Children to Not Be Gluttons
Editor’s note: Now we move onto the second part of this toxic mess – Lori Alexander explaining how she controlled her children’s eating and if you do not do the same – stay home and cook good food from scratch daily then you are failing your primary task as a mother. So much privilege in her words! Does she not realize that the cheaper foods that most in the Quiverfull world can afford to feed their children are also the most calorie-laden. Only someone that has never had to struggle with poverty and food insufficiency would say things like this!
When we were raising our children, we didn’t allow them to be gluttons. It pains me to see overweight children since it is setting them up for a life-long struggle with it. Life is more difficult when a person is obese and mothers have complete control what and how much their children eat when they are young.; another reason mothers should be keepers at home. They can make nutritious food from scratch and teach their children how to cook.
If we had dessert, our children were given only one serving and I rarely had it for them. It sure wasn’t a nightly occurrence. I fed them healthy food from the time they were babies. Way too many children are obese today from eating junk food, eating too much, and not exercising enough. Don’t have junk food in your home. If they want a snack, give them a piece of fruit or some nuts. Keep sweets to a minimum. Don’t let them watch a lot of television or computer time. My children played mostly when they were children. We would have never allowed them to sit around all day and let them watch TV or play video games.
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (! Corinthians 10:31)
Raising children is a 24/7 job or ministry since you are raising godly offspring. It’s all about training your children continually about what is right and what is wrong.
QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think?
