Any Followers of *The Pearls*?

Does anyone on here follow the ministry of Debbie and Michael Pearl? I have read "Created to be his help meet" and was told to take it with a grain of salt...I ended up needing the whole salt shaker. I then swore to never touch "To train up a child"....but im interested in it now. Any mama's who follow it? To what extreme?

  • haha....im planning a trip to tennessee...I hope to run into/over them. lol. They spank BABIES....like 3mth olds...with SWITCHES. My husband is so sick with disgust over what Ive shared with him. Children have been murdered by parents who follow the teachings of these loons....Lydia Schatz is the most recent. And Michael released a statement 3wks afterwards that was disturbing....he laughed at his critics...google lydia schatz michael pearl and see if you can find it....it was the craziest statement Ive ever heard. He said that his grand daughters laugh when they spank their dolls for being naughty, they laugh with joy because they know their babies will be good mommies.......WTF????

  • Yeah..I was reading comments on the site and one lady was so proud to spank her 4 month old with a wooden paint stirrer because the baby cries when she is angry. They also advocate not picking up a crying kid and to train them like you would a pet.

  • There is also an article on potty training 1day old babies...because its not "normal" to poop in a diaper.
    I hate when they say things like "break them down"......it breaks my heart....They treat them worse than animals....

  • Well, I can see using EC, but, not for the reasons why they do it.

  • This is too extreme for me, any hitting of any kind is not okay.
