Format: Paperback
To advocate disciplining children in this way is highly inappropriate and potentially dangerous. Smacking a 4 month old.. really..

Such chastisement is illegal in this country.

This book is disgusting, it advocates, hitting children - even babies. The latest scientific research has categorically proven that this sort of 'discipline' (I hesitate to call it that) WILL and DOES harm children psychologically. If you follow this book your child WILL grow up to have psychological problems. I am disgusted that Amazon sell it, it should be withdrawn from sale immediately.

Amazon you should be ashamed of yourselves. Openly allowing a product which encourages child abuse to be purchased under your umbrella. Remove this product and any associated items instantly

How can you peddle this ridiculous 'book'? I am not so much angry at you (amazon), more the imbeciles that have penned this ridiculous diatribe. If you want your children to grow up fearing you and resenting everything you have 'done' for them then go ahead and heed the Pearl's words. If you have any common sense whatsoever, you will listen to your heart and know that this is NOT the way to bring up well rounded, autonomous individuals. I am thoroughly disgusted that people can read this and see sense in it, where is the COMPASSION? understanding of INDIVIDUALITY? Take a look at ATTACHMENT THEORY, people! The science is there for you to examine (and hopefully understand!)

I might sound like a bit of a nutter, but I have a passion for enabling the best in children, and it all comes down to the environment they are brought up in. The strategies taught in this book are highly detrimental to a child's growth and development, It is essentially a handbook on how to manipulate a child into complying with an adults whim. 'Make your child OBEDIENT' 'make your child COMPLIANT'. Children are not compliant or obedient, they are learning about the world through testing boundaries, they develop their own sense of self through these tests, and restricting them can only lead to mal-adjusted ideas about how the world works. Parents (and I use the term loosely) who bring their children up (sorry, TRAIN their children up) according to these 'rules' are setting their offspring up to be naive and unprepared for the real, adult world which awaits them, and for that, I am truly sorry.

I can not believe this book is still on sale. Everyone knows that many children have lost their lives due to the parents following the teachings they suggest. R.I.P little angels x

Amazon, seriously why are you advocating child abuse and torture? Why do you insist on perpetuating it via distribution of this horrific torture guide? These people should be jailed for writing this, and admitting the abuse of their own child

Format: Paperback
I am incredulous that this book could possibly still be for sale by Amazon when it tells you to beat your children in to submission. Which is child abuse. Children have died as a result of following the insanity and cruelty written in this book. What next Amazon, a book about how to be like Saville perhaps? BAN IT NOW. [...]
