Check out the following blogs:
OK, I have only read the introduction and the first chapter of Pearl's "To Train Up a Child" (http://www.gospeltruth.net/children/pearl_tuac.htm) and I can not believe that ANY thinking person could possibly think that they should follow his advise. I can't believe that anyone could read of "switching" at 4 month old with a willow branch for attempting to climb the steps are the actions of a loving connected parent. That purposefully taunting your child with an object of their desire and then "switching" their hand for reaching for it builds trust between parent and child. This just makes me SICK. That at least 2 families have murdered their children, justifying their actions because of this book is appalling.
