    Another couple found guilty of murder for parenting by "To Train Up a Child"

    Another couple found guilty of murder for parenting by "To Train Up a Child" - Mankato attachment parenting | Examiner.com

    It's sick that these people are out there, and that they followed a book sold under the guise of Christianity. It isn't Christian to starve or beat a child, so don't turn this into a Christian/Atheist thing. It's evil, not Christian.

    The author's response to a different case of another child killed by his techniques:

    Michael Pearl writes that he is laughing at his critics after child's death - Mankato attachment parenting | Examiner.com

    In a lengthy diatribe on his Facebook fan page, he wrote that he and his family are all laughing at the "caustic critics" who have come out against him after the death of Lydia Schatz. He writes that children who are disciplined according to his methods "...become the models of self-control and discipline... that pay the taxes your children will receive in entitlements."
    Charming. I wonder which of our posters is this guy in disguise.....

    As a father of young children... thank you. I now have some techniques to utilize.

    Some of the discipline techniques the Pearls teach include:
    •Using plastic tubing to beat children, since it hurts a lot but leaves fewer marks to alert authorities
    •Wearing the plastic tubing around the parent's neck as a constant reminder to obey
    •"Swatting" babies as young as six months old with instruments such as "a 12-inch willowy branch," thinner plastic tubing or a wooden spoon
    •"Blanket training" babies by hitting them with an instrument if they try to crawl off a blanket on the floor
    •Beating older children with rulers, paddles, belts and larger tree branches
    •"Training" children with pain before they even disobey, in order to teach total obedience
    •Giving cold water baths, putting children outside in cold weather and withholding meals as discipline
    •Hosing off children who have potty training accidents
    •Inflicting punishment until a child is "without breath to complain."

    Michael Pearl tells one mother on his website, "I could break his anger in two days. He would be too scared to get angry. On the third day he would draw into a quiet shell and obey."

    Please keep this a secret. The kids raised in these homes will have such a great advantage over me in the work place.

    Just don't list the names of the kids who were raised in these homes when I have a job interview to go to.

    Nah. There's training a child --- which I've done --- and there's breaking a child. This is breaking, and it's way too far.

    These authors are marketing geniuses.

    I looked up this book on Amazon.

    The Five Star reviews say the same thing as the One star reviews. This is hilarious. I think I know why they are selling so many books. People love hating it. lol

    Michael and Debi Pearl will benefit by your free advertising. I'm sure they'd be delighted to sell more books.

    I suppose they are part of society.

    Yeah, this is extreme authoritarian parenting. Really extreme. I can't think of too many circumstances where this would be remotely productive.
