Second issue, Every child is different, every family culture, environment is different.... in volume 1 I feel, Mike pearl assumed generalization applied based on his (perceived) superior intellect/insight, culture, family situation, and (inconsistent) bible exegesis...my take...skip it, read Voddie Boucham's, Kent hughes', John MacArthur's, Tim Keller's books on marriage and families... is this harsh....yes, but this is scary stuff ... feels cultish....I wonder what denominations they belong to...
Anytime you lash out and violently hit a child when you are angry it ithat codons violent abusive behavior.
When our twins were 10 months old we starting implementing these methods.
Let's say our baby was going to touch an outlet, we would take a 12" piece of leather SOFTLY tap his hand and QUIETLY say, "no, no." He would turn to look at us and usually reach out to touch it again. Before he could touch it we would CALMLY tap his hand once again and QUIETLY say, "no, no." More often than not we would all HAPPILY move on and we would PRAISE him. That's the extent of it.
We have the happiest most well behaved kids ever! We don't have raise our voices or get angry. Our twins are almost 2 1/2 now and we VERY RARELY ever tap their hands. When we speak our toddlers listen! We value our times together and a lot more time to spend loving and being playful!
At first we got a lot of flack from others, mostly my parents and in-laws when we told them what we were doing but once they actually saw for themselves how calm we are with them and how equally calm, obedient & content our twins are the judgements turned into praise! What a blessing these books have been.
