Shooting beyond the mark. Well intentioned or not the message discredits the atonement. The are better ways to address the practical consequences related to substance abuse etc., but conflating those with ideas of rejection and exclusion...yikes.

I thought the book looked cute, so I picked it up and began to read, I felt sad about the message that would most likely come across to the kids. I understand the sweet authors intent, but I think the message kids are going to pick up is the importance of trying to be "perfect" which is a real epidemic in the lds community. Kids need to know that "Be ye therefore perfect" is something only achievable with the help of the Savior and the idea that we could be perfect or never sin is not possible. Even I struggle with this, I understand on a logical level that I can't be perfect without the Savior and yet I still try and try to be, and fall prey to Satan's well devised discouragement and hopelessness of not being "good enough" or worthy of help from the Savior.

I would love to ask miss Nelson if even SHE in her high holiness could have belonged to The Not Even Once Club as a young girl.

Everyone sins and you never bribe or reward with candy. It promotes non acceptance of people because of a small mistake. Wrong on many, many levels.

I was sick to my stomach when I read this book. This book has absolutely nothing to do with Christ, or the Atonement. This teaches judging and shaming to our children. I am embarrassed that the LDS church would sell this kind of book at its bookstore. Please please remove this damaging book, and spare children of it's damning message

Because it doesn't mention Christ

This is an impossible standard that will cause tremendous unnecessary stress for the children who read it.

I want my kids to know they ARE going to make mistakes and they ARE part of Christ's club even if they do!

This book is utterly wrong! I would NEVER use this kind of manipulation to teach my kids.
