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 Something I haven't done in YEARS

Frequently at our homeschool co-op people bring in boxes of books they no longer want. People can look through them and take what they want. Today I was just glancing through a box, nothing caught my eye, until I saw a well-read copy of Babywise.

Picked it up and went and buried it in the trash. Felt good.

This is a great idea! I never thought of going through the free stuff at coop and taking out the harmful stuff. I will keep this on my radar for the future.

I don’t know many with babies right now and was just wondering is Ezzo and the Pearls are still a trend.

I used buy every copy I find at half price books. Your post Brings back memories (don’t recall last time I saw one in a store)

I see the babywise like advise on instagram and tiktok sometimes but saying it's not developmentally appropriate or that babies have been hurt is Mom Shaming and you get eaten. :eyeroll
