When I read Michael Pearl's arrogant response to what he refers to as his "critics" http://pearlchildtraining.blogspot.com/2010/03/michael-pearl-laughs-at-c... yesterday, I became physically ill. I thought to myself, Michael Pearl is insufferable. How wrong to bring up the plastic whip, to relate it to his dogs and chickens, and children. He shows absolutely no remorse. No clarifications. Just arrogance. At first, I thought he will answer someday to his God, you know!
This morning when I awoke this was still on my mind. I thought to myself, how many more children must die because of this man who looks like Santa Claus, teachings? Then anger started to rise up in me. I thought, "You've got to be kidding me! The ONLY good citizens, the only good employers, the only good anybodies will be those trained by the Pearl method?"
Arrogance indeed. It would be pitiful if it weren't so deadly in its application. Because his arrogant confidence is what makes so many insecure parents believe he must be right, because he claims this is God's way.
A lot of laughing at the pearl home....funny, I don't hear the dead children laughing!
I entertained thoughts such as, "If I were to ever see him using that 1/4 inch plumbing supply line on a dog, I would choke him. And on a child?! Oh, he wouldn't be laughing ever again!"
