As a mother of five happy, wonderful children (ages 2-18) and a public school teacher for 16 years, this really concerned me. I decided to purchase the pamphlet and see for myself what Ginger Plowman advocates in this writing. I was shocked to learn that NOWHERE in this booklet does she speak about beating, abusing (physically or verbally) or demeaning your children. She uses scripture to teach your child what God thinks about sin. The first page states that "Wise Words are to be spoken with a loving heart and a gentle voice."
Discipline is absolutely necessary in order to raise children to be content and happy adults. The word discipline means to "teach". It appears that some people are so worried about admitting that children may have sin in their hearts that they will make up outrageous allegations in order to prevent people from ordering this booklet.
In today's society, many people choose to avoid discipline at all costs. Children should absolutely be cherished and respected, but without training, they will never learn to become respectful, productive adults. Children need to know when they have done something wrong, what they should have done instead and that there are consequences for their actions. Love without discipline creates a society with no conscience because "everything is acceptable".Read more ›
For example under quarreling, arguing it has questions one example...
Are you being strong and avoiding strife or are you being weak and participating in strife? Then under reproof it says Quarreling. A harsh word stirs up anger. You need to depart from evil and do good because God says it is foolish to quarrel. Proverbs 15:1b, Psalm 34:14, and Proverbs 20:3b then under Encouragement it says Peace making. A gentle answer turns away wrath. It is to your honor to avoid strife and to live at peace with everyone. Proverbs 20:3a, Romans 12:18 Proverbs 15:1a then it lists additional versus to look up
I have really enjoyed using this chart in training my children to do what is right and also for myself. When I deal with things such as fear, worry , selfishness, coveting, or complaining I am reminded through scripture what to put off and put on straight from God's word. It has been helpful with scripture memory too and applying the scriptures right there in everyday life.
Wonderful tool in promoting the reason why we do and don't do things....to Glorify God.
I would guess the string of negative, similar reviews in February came from a group of people who agreed to come on and post negative reviews. Especially since most of them talk like this is a book, not a chart. I'm guessing several of those people haven't actually read this chart. Because even if you disagree with the book, I find it hard to see disagreeing with the use of these scriptures if you are a Christian.
