Learning to be Cheap Creates Gratitude?

Learning to be Cheap Creates Gratitude? July 8, 2018

There is nothing very glaringly wrong with Michael Pearl’s piece in the new No Greater Joy magazine. It just seems odd, using the example of teaching their children to be thrifty leading to their learning to be grateful. What do you think? Does learning to be cheap really lead to gratitute?

Strange story about gratitude. It lines up quite neatly with a rather disturbing piece recently quoted by Lori Alexander which pretty much denies a need of a child to fit in, feel like part of a larger group. The part about the marriage bed in Lori’s piece was just awful. Who needs to be so afraid of having children in their bed occasionaly?
