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.

so sad!!!

Having had a teenage son who walks on the wild side I can tell you that a lot of those thugs are just hurting boys. They crave someone to love and accept them even though they act tough, well at least here in our little farming town. They have tattoos and look a little rough but they call me mom and are happy to see me.

I had to re-read that about four times.

I thought you meant that the thugs were going around hurting boys and not that they themselves are hurting boys!

I do agree. I've got a "tough kid" here. Not a gangbanger, but he gets mad and physical when he is hurting most.

Yeah our town does not have any gangbangers and I think they would need to change their drawers if they ever met a real gangbanger, but we have some definate tough kids in our town who could hold their own in a street fight, my son included. But yeah they are just kids mostly. Having a tough kid really opened my eyes to them.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that "glue-stick-spanking" is a thing! Like, the little tubes of glue sticks that go in a hot glue gun??? Really???

Yes, but the longer tubes. I believe that is explained somewhere in this thread.

I'll be honest- gluesticks came highly encouraged from a pastor of a church we attended briefly. The big thick 12 inch ones.... And this was a pretty laid back church where the mama's AP!
