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.

Wow... I'm so glad this was bumped! Extremely thought-provoking and wow... <- that last one because apparently gang members are more thoughtful and kind that Christian parenting gurus are

That story is unreal. Thank you for posting, something else in my growing arsenal for the thou shalt spank crowd. But that story illustrates a point I made to DH a few days ago. That point is if there were no "Christians" saying that if you don't spank, you are sinning, then we would be openly horrified at the very idea of hitting a child on a regular basis. I'm not saying we would be up in arms because a parent lost it and slapped their kid after the tenth time she back talked that day, (we would not approve), but we would be appalled and vocally so if there were not people saying it is God's will. The gang members' reaction says it all.

Wow! I have a friend who told me about how her cousin starts training her kids around 7 or 8 mo to sit still & quiet through a long church service. She told me that her cousin hit her babies with glue sticks, but I visualized the Elmer's Glue Sticks and couldn't figure out how that would work. Now that I know, I'm just sickened. Those poor children!

I would have never seen it either. And thanks for posting it.

I, too, had never heard of Ezzos, Pearls, or anything like that before I came here. I am always always when I read things like this...but now this will enlighten me to what is actually out there.
I can't believe there's a BOOK that teaches this!!!!!!!

Thanks for bumping this. I'd never heard of hitting a child with a glue stick until now. Poor babies!

Default Re: Gangbangers and Gluesticks

what the fluff! I have never heard of this glue stick whipping, and I come from/know a lot of punitive parents. The people I knew are crazy about little dowell rods or little leather straps.
I too think it is sick and perverted to try and think of ways to hurt but hide your actions from who? oh right, the evile government who wants to take our children from us.
