To Train Up A Child: a child abuse manual

Trigger warning: child abuse, physical abuse

‘To Train Up A Child’ is a parenting book by Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joys Ministries. It’s the most sickening book I’ve ever come across.

You may have seen this book already. I stumbled across it after reading a post on facebook outlining the death of a child in America who died at the hands of her parents who had been following the ‘Christian parenting advice’ given in this book and I have struggled to get it out of my head since.

You’ll have guessed this book is no ordinary book. After all, no ordinary book causes children to die. This is a discipline manual for babies and children.

In the introduction of the book, the authors deny this is the case; they argue the book is about training children before the need to discipline arises. But this book is definitely about child abuse. It’s effectively a child abuse manual.
