Remove the book "To Train Up a Child" by Michael and Debi Pearl


This book is atrocious. It has been linked to the deaths of three children, Lydia Schatz, Hana Williams and Sean Paddock. This book teaches "discipline" in the form of child abuse, neglect and torture. As a long time customer of Amazon, I was shocked to see that this is sold through their company. No one should advocate that a child should be whipped or spanked into submission as this book does. The book states: "Give 10 licks at a time, more if the child resists. Be careful about using it in front of others -- even at church; nosy neighbors might call social workers."

 As you can see from this article, this book has been linked with these deaths.

Why would anyone support this kind of parenting? Why isn't someone doing something about it? Please join me in this fight. Amazon please remove this horrible book immediately.


if you have not read the book and would like more insight on the terrible teachings, please view this video:
