LOL! :lol: On a more serious note, I am so tempted to post a comment on there to lead Failbloggers to the dangerous craziness these people promote. I would LOVE to see the Pearls out of business for good for what they do to children.

This is the original article and what bothers me is that they are trying to downplay their training methods

Everyone calls me the “soft-hearted Pearlâ€, and knowing this to be truth, I knew that I would have to train my children so well that I would not have to rely on spanking.

further down, near the bottom, she writes:

Most toddlers will respond correctly, but if he balks when your helper takes the little one’s hand, then have the helper spat the child’s legs to reinforce the command.

The first comment on the entry was, "Their whole philosophy is one big parent fail." Luckily some people already know.

She is not a dog... This sounds like how our family dog is raised. He understand those commands. His master is dominant.

Gracie, come here. Gracie! Ah, come to mama. :animals-dogrun: Sit! I said, sit! Stand! Oh aren't you a good girl. Here you go. :beer:

That's the first thing I thought of too. Of course Michael Pearl apparently uses the same training techniques of both farm animals and children so the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree. I'm a bit surprised he hasn't been stomped to death by a mule that has finally snapped.

Well, my response to the OP proves that I am a 12 year old dragqueen trapped in a woman's body once and for all. And, yes, going to hell.

Even without the spanking and spitting, what's to be proud of? I liked having conversations with my little one. Whole conversations! I didn't just bark commands at him. I guess it's more important in Pearl circles to raise a cleaning robot than a human being.

My teenager leaves his clothes on the floor a lot but he understands the house has to be clean and he pitches in a lot. He doesn't do anything on command, which is sometimes frustrating, but neither do I. When the kid is messier than usual, I understand because he's been studying 24/7 and I give him a pass. Maybe a parent fail on my part but I would rather do that than be a tyrant.

No one should hold children accountable to a higher standard than what would be expected for an adult.

I would not even advocate this method for training an animal. I also let my dog get away with some things but she's turning out fine too. She just wants to please me.

It's Failblog. In that context, what other response could there possibly be? :mrgreen:

Which comments did you make thoughtful and marmalade? I only see three!

They moderate before comments appear, so it may take a while.

I didn't respond. I was replying to Angri-La's response to the wording of the post, which can have a very 12 year old interpretation.

IOW, TOTALLY not what the Pearls intended when they wrote that caption. :twisted:

Uhhh...that was actually my first thought as to what the fail was :oops: It's only once I came to post over here that I caught the animal-training reference :lol:

Do they mean literally spit on the child's legs? Or am I reading it wrong??

No, "spat" is a noun -- one of the Pearls' little euphemisms for a whipping.

Thanks. I think I prefered it when I thought it was spitting. :( Poor kids.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
