Mothering By Grace Reviews Shepherding A Child’s Heart

I just found this excellent review of Tedd Tripp’s Book, Shepherding A Child’s Heart at Mothering By Grace.

The Pearls’ Book NOT Banned in New Zealand (Working on Amazon)

New Zealand’s Censorship Compliance Unit has decided not to ban nor restrict Michael and Debi Pearl’s book, To Train Up A Child, according to this article in the Marlborough Press.  While I don’t believe in book banning, it seems to me that if a country has that policy, this book should fall into that category and I am a bit confused as to how they reached their decision.

I do believe in encouraging book sellers to stop selling offensive books and so does  Milli Hill at Peaceful Parenting who explains why Amazon should stop selling books which promote Child Abuse, especially To Train Up A Child. This piece includes a long quote from Debi Pearl in which she explains how one should use the switch on a child under one year old.

Note: The petition to which she links is the same one to which I link in my side bar. If you have not signed it, please sign it and share the link. Thank you.

One Mom’s Look at “Shepherding A Child’s Heart”

Thatmom has re-posted Anne Sokol’s book review of Ted Tripp’s book, Shepherding A Child’s Heart.  I’m so glad she did because I missed it the first time.

Speaking of which, here is another review of that book from MarynMunchkins on GCM.

Review of Shepherding A Child’s Heart

Gentle Christian Mothers reviews Shepherding A Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp.

This is the first in a series of posts highlighting the different procedures given by various Christian authors on the proper way to spank. I’m hoping to show that there isn’t a biblical way to spank, but that the views on so-called biblical spanking procedures are man-made and based on cultural assumptions and opinion

She warns her readers not to read on if a description of a spanking would upset them. Sensitive readers, take heed! The spanking described sounds a lot like a Roy Lessin spanking. 🙁 (Another link which sensitive readers will want to avoid.)

Also from Gentle Christian Mothers is Mary’s review of Shepherding A Child’s Heart.

Lucy’s Story

Lucy tells her story at Dare To Disciple. She shares how her views of spanking have changed during her lifetime and why she feels that spanking and Christianity are incompatible.
