Discontinue the sale of To Train Up A Child by Michael and Debi Pearl.
This is a book advocates the abusive disciplining of children as young as 6 months and is designed by the Pearl's to "break the will" of the child. In the text Michael refers to willful children as as being similar to animals which have to be trained. It is Ironic that his training strategy for animals is becoming more accepted as abusive for the animals, so the question is where does that leave children in his disciplinary scheme?
We ask that Amazon and Barnes and Noble discontinue the sale of "To Train Up A Child" by Michael and Debi Pearl in all forms of media on their sites. The Pearls advocate a cruel and abusive disciplinary strategy for children which calls for breaking the children's will through abuse and excessive corporal punishment. This manual is primer in cruelty and the tactics are tantamount to brainwashing and torture. While Censorship is deplorable to me I can't help but feel that this action is a public service,
