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.

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 A Spanking Paddle

This saddenes me to think how many parents are going to do this and more scarey how many will do it out of anger. Disturbing.

Ran across a website and found this headline.

Use Lovingly and NEVER in Anger

[flowermama edited to break the link so that it is not a live link due to posting guideline number 18 which says. . . "No posting live links to sites that violate our statement of parenting beliefs (example: sites that promote CIO or punitive parenting). . . "]

Ouch! Those things look like they hurt. Can you imagine what a child must feel like when his/her parents hit him/her with a BOARD? It is just so sad.

strange....

did you read his FAQs? one was "why do you advocate violence?" he answers by defining violence and then saying he doesn't advocate violence.

Okay, IF YOU CAUSE SOMEONE PHYSICAL PAIN IT IS VIOLENCE. I don't care what the "outcome" is or what your "guidelines" or heart attitude are....causing another person to experience physical (or emotional!) pain is violence...it is abuse.

I know that got me how are you going to expect your kids to fill out a form to get spanked I realy don't understand the logic of it. I was spanked with paddles as a child and I would not have filled out a sheet I would have just been more sneaky to make sure I got by with it. I guess some people don't understand how harmful that is. It should be illegal to have a website like that.
