    To train up a child, book has lead to the death of 3 children

    Another child has been murdered by her parents following instructions written in a book on child discipline, this is the 3rd death so far. the book is given to many church goers and military families for free.

    Link to recent death.

    I only just discovered this and haven't looked into the other deaths yet, it is sad anyone would even consider following the guidelines listed in the pearls book.
    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

    Ok, so another adopted child dead.

    Methods from the book:

    - Using plastic tubing to beat children, since it hurts a lot but leaves fewer marks to alert authorities
    - 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."
    How is someone even publishing this crap?

    Sean Paddock at his fourth birthday

    JANUARY 2005: Sean and his siblings first visit the Paddocks' farm outside Smithfield. Sean returns from the weekend visit with a bruise on his backside. Lynn Paddock said he fell off a bunk bed. He and his siblings said Paddock whipped him for playing with the family dog.

    FEBRUARY 2005: Social workers conclude that Sean tumbled from the bunk bed and the Ford children resume their visits to the Paddock farm.

    JULY 2005: The adoption is completed.

    FEBRUARY 2006: Sean suffocates after being tightly bundled in blankets. Investigators determine Lynn Paddock has been spanking the children with plastic plumbing supply line. Lynn Paddock is charged with first-degree murder and child abuse. She remains jailed in Johnston County.

    I read about this in another forum. Until then I had never heard of this book. MOO is that the authors bears responsibility in these deaths. There is all kinds of talk about civil liberties and book banning, etc. but people are so stupid as to follow these books that are nothing but child abuse. This one and Babywise both belong in a big bonfire never to be read again!

    Spanking a six month old baby is evil to the core. Everything mentioned in that book is. How can anyone get away with a book instructing on how to abuse and churches go along with it. So-called churches.

    I believe in corporal punishment. My children were spanked. But there is a big difference in a spanking and a beating. And you never spank a baby!

    I believe this book mentions breaking the spirit. That is abuse too. Something needs to be done.

    There is no such thing as a discipline "session". Call it what it is...torture,gross cruelty, out of control anger on the part of the person who is so void if concience that he or she takes pleasure in causing physical and emotional agony to destroy a child. People hurt kids to feel powerful. The world is full of idiots.

    This is my very experienced opinion as a long time parent and grandparent. People who choose to advocate abuse are generally offended by it and that's fine with me. All it takes to create a majority is a lot of people who refuse to stand for what's right instead of hiding among the crowd. MOO

    Book burning would be appropriate in this case. Hopefully a Dateline or 20/20
    investigative exposť will occur.

    I'd like to find out which churches promote the book, and know exactly why the military gives it out.

    I have heard that Amish parents use a type of blanket training. I can believe it.
