Sometimes the Pearls ARE Swine.

Mamacita says:  These particular scum-sucking spawn “humanoids” are once again being discussed in the Blogosphere, so I’m re-running my own take on them.  I refer to Michael and Debi Pearl.

I beg of you all, do not buy any books by these people. (link removed on advice from much smarter person than me.) I have seen other blogposts and articles that expose these people for what they really are, but I think this is the first time I’ve posted my opinion here.  (I call them “people” only because of my innate good breeding.  I do not consider the authors of this book “people” at all.  They are monsters.)

Michael and Debi Pearl. They are the Child Abuse Gurus of the uneducated and ignorant masses.

Follow their advice and you can murder your children in the name of blatant stupidity love. Beware of stupid people with masters and weapons.   Kool-aid, anyone?  Thrust your babies into the fire that YOU might enter paradise?

Show your deep and abiding love for your innocent little infant by hitting him with a stick and drawing blood. Be sure you lower the blinds first, because you know how those nosy neighbors like to call CPS on you. Choose your weapon carefully; you don’t want nosy daycare workers to see any welts. PVC plumbing pipes are good for hitting. Pull his hair out. Pinch him till it bleeds. Bite him. THAT’LL teach him to go to sleep when you tell him to; he’s four months old already and it’s time he’s aware of who’s in charge. It’s all about control, and showing your kids who’s the boss. And when your kids are too young to understand words, you can be sure they’ll understand pain. Train them like the dogs they are.

Dear Lord. Do not let these people get any more followers. They are evil, and they prey upon the ignorant. Their book is nothing more than a handbook for sadists and child abusers, with lines of scripture thrown in here and there to fool those who are easily fooled by such tactics. It’s the same tactic used by the KKK in their brochures. They are banking on you not being smart enough to understand what they are really saying.

I am not saying that we should let our children be the bosses. No way. I think by now you all know my opinion of brats. But I am saying that an adult who can be the boss only by inflicting pain on a child, or an INFANT, is a mighty poor excuse for a human being. And a supposed authority figure who not only encourages it, but TEACHES PEOPLE HOW, is evil personified.

Please, all you supposedly good and reputable websites who are allowing these people to advertise on your site: No more. Their presence on your website is bringing you down and reducing your credibility to the lower depths. Surely their money doesn’t mean THAT much to you? Although, if the ads remain, I guess it does, huh.

I know that there are people who claim they can take ‘some’ of these people’s advice and ignore the rest. No, you can’t. The mere presence of this book in your home is creepy. Heck, we can find good advice here and there in anything. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Let’s love our children, and teach them by example. Let’s discipline them gently. Let’s not draw blood and raise welts and end each day with a handful of soft child’s hair in our hands, and a little toddler’s blood in our teeth.

Just thinking of these people makes me cry. And thinking of these people also makes me furious, at them, and at anyone who follows their violent and sadistic methods.

Let’s go home and hug our children. That’s “hug” them, not beat them.  Unlike the Pearls, I do not believe in disciplining little children with whips, chains, and blood-letting.

I hope there is a Hell that will give this couple, and all who follow them, exactly what they deserve.  EXACTLY.  Let them spend eternity being treated as they treated their own children and advised the ignorant to treat theirs.

As for the ignorant who follow their example, I do not feel sorry for you, either.  I hope you end up in the next cell beside the Pearls.  It’s one thing to be ignorant and hurt only yourselves, but when you are ignorant and hurt little children on purpose, you deserve precisely the same treatment.

Bah.  These people make me sick.

  1. I swear! I’m a believer in positive parenting with limits. But, my God, aren’t Mike and Debi childbeater, I mean Swine, I mean, Pearl polar opposites? I’m blind and I’d like to have this book in audio format just so I can see what BS they’re trying to sell people. sheesh!

  3. I can’t believe it’s legal to sell what amounts to a child torture “how to” book. Barnes and Noble has the decency to refuse to sell this piece of filth, but Amazon and Borders continue to carry the Pearls’ child abuse manual. I have cancelled my accounts with both Amazon and Borders until they remove the Pearls disgusting book from their sites/stores, and I recommend others do the same — Barnes and Noble has deeper discounts and better shipping, anyway.

    I also think the adoption agency who facilitated the Schatz’s adoption of three children all at once should be investigated. How could a family who practiced these horrific methods of child “training” be allowed to take in these three children?

    Time to shine the light of day on a whole lotta dark, disturbing ugliness going on in this story…

  7. Michael Pearl actually teaches conditioned responses to pain, not anything biblical. He must have come across some articles written
    BF Skinner and Pavlov and moronically applied them to humans.
    He feeds his own demented ego by crushing the spirits of the
    defenseless and there is a very special place in Hell waiting for him
    full of the knowledge of the truth about the merciless pain he has inflicted on the innocent.

  9. As a child, I was hit with different things from around the house (I’ll say it outright: I was abused as a child), and I find it horrific that anyone who is not mentally ill could advocate such things. My own mother was abused herself as a child and, at the time of my own childhood, had an undiagnosed mental illness. Now that she’s properly diagnosed and medicated, she is a completely different woman and such a loving grandmother to my nieces. It’s night to who she was and day to who she currently is, and I’m glad she finally received the help she needs. (And she herself is horrified by some of the things she did to my sister and me.)

    These other people? Don’t call them monsters. Please. To do so negates the fact that they are humans who are doing this, and we can never, never underestimate the evil deeds that can reside in the human heart. People, yes people, can be terrible, horrible creatures themselves, and other people with kind and good hearts need to speak out to counteract their ill deeds. To call them monsters makes it seem that we can’t begin to fight against their terrible actions, but to call them horrific humans lets us know that each one of is can take responsibility as humans ourselves for fighting against what they are saying and doing to innocent children.

    I’m pretty sure these people aren’t mentally ill and are just using God’s words to make themselves feel more powerful. That’s not what God is about, unfortunately for them. I wonder … have they ever read the Beatitudes?

  11. And to really go after such beasts, they’ll cry that their freedom of speech and religion “rights” are being attacked. Damnit, ain’t it time that the kids and other victims RIGHTS are more important?

  13. I’d never heard of these people until now…I think I’m glad I hadn’t. How sickening. I’ve been reading Positive Parenting (what a contrast to what the Pearls preach) and while I’m not sure I’m completely on board with the “if your child hits another child, give your child a hug” concept, I certainly wouldn’t hit my child, either!

    How do these people get published?!

  15. As always, Mamacita has hit the nail on the head. I’ve read the Pearls’ book and it’s the perfect example of evil, dysfunctional, ignorant thinking. But even if I hadn’t already known about these people, I’d have avoided them just because Jane told me to! Yup, that’s how much I respect her judgment. Now, when’s that book coming out?

  17. I once heard a brief snatch of an interview with Debi Pearl as I was flipping through channels on the radio. I was horrified–she was advocating discipline for babies that complain when they’re DAYS old.
