1.0 out of 5 stars
Utter Garbage!, 14 July 2009
I am a JW of 35 yrs standing. I have NEVER heard the term 'spanking room' although I have been a member or visited around 30 congregations. The truth is that JW's take their children to meetings as part of their reigious upbringing and occasionally have to discipline their children outside of the main hall, and yes the 'mother's room' could be used. But the discipline is invariably administered in love and with reasonableness, usually by a 'telling off'. Years ago before the law was changed I OCCASIONALLY would slap my child's leg as part of the discipline when all else had failed. The title of the book is a gross and grotesque distortion of the truth. Reading this book will serve no useful purpose! Instead I suggest visiting a kingdom hall for yourself if you want the truth. Unfortunately I was unable to award 0 stars!
