Should be called - how to train your child to be sociopath

Reading volume 3, I decided to buy volume 1....volume 3 is not bad....volume 1....they are doing what they are saying should not be done in volume 3...switching/licking the child if you see something you don't like, and make sure you don't show emotion, make sure we assert superiority until they submit to you (behavior manipulation that should be avoided stated in book 3) Mike pearl, write this, is as if he wants to train them like an ani

The 3.5 star rating obscures the fact that the Pearls offer some of the most hard-hitting and discerning wisdom on child-rearing that exists. Implementation of their methods makes children (who are selfish) choose against manipulative methods, because the Pearls always give the opposite of that which is desired when a child tries to manipulate with fake crying, whining or tantrums.

Written in a Q&A type of style, has some good tips but again, written in white/black thinking and extremely condescending. I'd recommend 'Sherphering a Child's Heart' over this one, although these are also good to have on the side. If there is a specific behaviour in my children that I don't know what to do about it, I sometimes do go to these books to find a similar situation and what the Pearls advice on it is.

Brilliant book! First picked it up a while ago, but in God's perfect time I Couldn't put it down. So many teachings in child training you'll need a pen and paper.. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!

There are some REALLY good points in this series, but you have to sift through some really ugly stuff to get there.

Down to earth practical answers to many questions asked of the Pearls, including advice that has worked for them in the area of child training, marriage etc.
