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.

Default Way to go, SouleMama

SouleMama has removed a sponsor from her site after discovering that said sponsor's values in regards to the treatment of children do not line up with her own.

Quote:
I believe with all my heart that all people should be treated gently and with love - no matter how small. I stand in firm opposition to corporal punishment, and any organization that advocates such violence.
The sponsor was the Bulk Herb Store, owned by Shoshanna Pearl, daughter of Mike and Debi Pearl. I was pleased to learn SouleMama won't be promoting that business anymore, and appreciated her firm stance on not supporting sponsors who have such vastly different values from her own.

(Mods, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, please move it to a more appropriate place if it is.)

SouleMama rocks! She just moved up a few more notches on my "coolness" meeter! She was already super high up there anyways.

Good for her. My friend raves about her but I'm too afraid to visit her blog, for fear of the massive feelings of inadequacy it might inspire in me, heh.
