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.

Default BUMP - It's Posted! Christianity Today editorial on TTUAC and spanking

Has anyone read it? Thou Shalt Not Abuse.

I tried to find it at the Web site to link to, but wasn't able to track it down. It's a very good read (mentioning the recent TTUAC-related deaths) and talks about William J. Webb's recent book Corporal Punishment in the Bible, which states the Bible doesn't forbid spanking but also doesn't require it. I will quote the final paragraph below:

Quote:
Some Christian parents will advocate corporal punishment until the peaceable kingdom arrives. But such means should be employed miles short of abuse, without anger, and as an absolute last resort. Given the risks involved - children's bodies are more fragile than an angry adult can fathom - we encourage parents to explore more creative and effective ways to train up our children in the way they should go.
I wish I could find the article online somewhere. There is a great paragraph that talks about an Albert Mohler quote on spanking and states Mohler misses the point when he says "God intends spanking to underline the cause-and-effect relationship of disobedience and punishment" because God's "first and ultimate response to his children is not to treat them violently."

Also, I wasn't sure where to put this...so feel free to move if it's not the appropriate forum.

IIRC, Christianity Today delays publishing some of their print articles on their website (usually by a month or two). I'm still waiting for one from the November issue, so I'll keep my eyes open for this one.
