The author of this book practices child abuse
on June 13, 2015
The author of this book practices child abuse. He also wrote the book "To Train Up A Child", which is directly linked to many children's deaths.
Some of the discipline techniques provided in this book are:
-Using plastic plumbing tubing to beat children
-Wearing the plastic tubing around the parent's neck as a constant reminder to obey
-"Swatting" babies as young as six months old with instruments such as "a 12-inch willowy branch," thinner plastic tubing or a wooden spoon
-"Blanket training" babies by hitting them with an instrument if they try to crawl off a blanket on the floor
-Beating older children with rulers, paddles, belts and larger tree branches
-"Training" children with pain before they even disobey, in order to teach total obedience
-Giving cold water baths, putting children outside in cold weather and withholding meals as discipline
-Hosing off children who have potty training accidents
-Inflicting punishment until a child is "without breath to complain"
If you think this is appropiate, think again. Several children have DIED because of this book. Their parents went to jail. You can read about one little girl seven-year old girl dying due to the practices used in this book by her parents:[...]
