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.

Quote:
Last I heard it was "Along the Infant Way"
Yes--perhaps they thought controversy had tarnished the brand, and that a new name would help put some distance between the criticism and their material.

Be that as it may, after a few years of the "Along the Infant Way" name, they changed back to Preparation for Parenting.

Default Re: Hate to cause conflict with my church ladies.

Well, after everything I ended up writing a blog post explaining why I believe babies were not designed to cry it out. I don't think I even covered half of what I wanted to but I had had some private messages from people who were curious about the whys and wanted more in depth answers....

http://gentletitus2mama.wordpress.co...to-cry-it-out/

Hopefully I said something in all those words that makes sense to somebody..

I shared it with Steph (writer on my blog) and she really liked it. She shared it all around Facebook!

Default Re: Hate to cause conflict with my church ladies.

I know this was quite a while ago now, but I just want to encourage you to keep standing for what you believe is right. It's not exactly the same thing, but in my head is fairly similar where in 2 Chronicles 36:16 it says 'But the people mocked these messengers of God and despised their words'
That's specifically talking about prophets, but I think the principle remains that if you are saying something from the heart of God and people don't want to accept it then they are going to despise you for challenging them. Noone likes to be told they're wrong...but remember offence isn't given, only taken!
