Default Re: Conversations about sleep training

I also don't know but couldn't just read and run. I'm sorry, that's tough. Do you think you could possibly frame it in a way of being concerned for the safety of the program, without saying anything bad about sleep training? There are programs that work with babies to sleep and they're called sleep training but they're not CIO one-size-fits-all, maybe you could find one and suggest that one. It is so unfortunate that this is so prevalent in the church. We shouldn't be a people that needs such control over our children. I think there's a subset of believers who are hurt and their hurt comes out in ultra-devotion to ministry. I've seen it a lot, this idea that true ministry or service comes at great cost to your own family. Then you get people like this who see their baby as getting in the way of their work. Or people who leave their families to go serve somewhere else or this idea that in order to be an effective minister your children need to be in boarding school. It's really sad.
