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 Question on Pearls Methods

I have a question about the Pearls and their methods. Someone was saying that with their training you don't deal with the child when they do something wrong, you train them to not do something wrong in the first place. This makes NO sense to me at all.

Can anyone explain?

Default Re: Question on Pearls Methods

You set a stage. . . you set the child up to do wrong. ..and then discipline that. For instance. You take the cookie jar, put it right within their sight, you make sure there's a step stool where they can see/reach it, you tell them "Do not touch the cookie jar!", thereby making sure they see it, and know that they are not allowed to touch it, then you leave, peek around the corner, and when the child gets to the cookie jar, you come right back in and switch them. You are 'training' them, 'conditioning' them.

Well, that's just an example. But, it's the whole premise of what they teach. ..
