Unprepared for Parenting (Ezzos, Pearls, Etc.) *Public* Support and information for those affected by the Ezzos, the Pearls, and other punitive and adversarial methods of child-rearing.
A public forum.
Before posting here, please read this sticky and keep guideline 23 in mind:

23. No posts harshly dissecting parenting moments of others since we desire to humbly cultivate a heart attitude of grace and not judgment towards other mamas. We all struggle at times as parents and have much to learn, and GCM's focus is to provide tools and information for each of us to parent more effectively. Posts voicing some frustration regarding choices made by others can be okay, but it needs to be within the overall context of seeking understanding or ideas for better responses in the future.

These are slightly on sale. Two discs of Life on the Pond, which is similar but cuter/younger/gentler.

If you search Youtube, there are animated episodes. I prefer listening...they don't look like I imagined, and I think they changed a little of the narration to fit the visual format. But it's another way to preview.

Not Christian...but not secular either...we loved the audio book of James Herriot , A Treasury for Children.

We loved that one, too! Adorable animal stories from a veterinarian decades ago.

I grew up listening to Adventures In Odyssey. I remember siblings fighting, being mean, and by the end of it all after getting good advice and learning changing their behavior and making things right. I love that.
I remember parents making mistakes and working to make things better. And many more. That were fun, and the people usually learned their lesson and worked to change by the end of the episode, sometimes it carried into other episodes too before resolution was found.
I love AIO and when ever I find them and can afford them I get them.
There are a few darker episodes that do tackle really hard topics that kids have to deal with in real life, but not all. And while not appropriate for all ages I think they addressed most of those pretty well.
