More Bad Parenting Advice With Michael Pearl

More Bad Parenting Advice With Michael Pearl October 9, 2018

I know we’ve likely covered this very parenting article before from No Greater Joy. It’s one of those suspicious letters the Pearls get. This time about a girl named Sue that was defiant in every area of her life. It almost sounds like budding ODD Oppositional Defiance Disorder from here. What does Michael make of it? She’s manipulative so beat her and break her spirit. Then he throws shade at the mother for daring to care for her medically fragile child’s needs. Yes, folks, more bad parenting advice with Michael Pearl.

Oh so much wrong here! No, Mr. Pearl, willful strong toddlers are not the same as prisoners and do not even remotely have the same objectives in misbehavior. Plus I am pretty sure it’s illegal for the prison to beat them no matter what fetid fantasies Michael has.

Don’t treat your children like manipulative felons. There is a lot going on here in this letter, but none of it what Michael Pearl thinks it says.
