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.

That is really...wow... I am filing that story away and the one earlier from Atarah about the similarities she found in the book "Creative Correction" to the phychological torture methods used by POW camps in her POW training.
I just can't believe that of all people, it's CHRISTIANS who do these things. I just don't get it...

That is just insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess I am blessed that I know hardly anything aboutTripps, Pearl and Ezzo. I did read the babywise book once but it didnt make any sense to me. It all just felt wrong.
That makes me for those children.

Wow you have guts to go across the street and ask! But I am wondering- how do you spank a kid with a 4inch piece of gluestick? I must not be imagining it correctly.

the craft gluesticks that you use for a glue gun- they are about 10 inches long
they are touted by several pro spankers as the best way to spank without leaving marks.

that's crazy... reminds me of the verse, something about God using the "foolish" of the world (in this case, the gang) to confound the "wise."
