Pearl still claims innocence, for himself and his followers

“We do not teach ‘corporal punishment’ nor ‘hitting’ children,” Michael Pearl told the Paradise Post. “If indeed these parents were abusive, and that has not yet been proven by the courts, it is regretful that our teachings were not able to turn them from their predisposition to abusive habits…”

I think the quotes various bloggers have been posting from his various works indicate they do, in fact, teach corporal punishment to the point of injury, whether physical, mental, emotional, or even spiritual. He says don’t stop, keep going until you break the child’s will. Sit on him if you have to. Maybe dude should read his own stuff.

  1. “We do not teach 'corporal punishment' nor 'hitting' children,”


    From TTUAC: “Any spanking, to effectively reinforce instruction, must cause pain, but the most pain is on the surface of bare skin where the nerves are located. A surface sting will cause sufficient pain, with no injury or bruising. Select your instrument according to the child's size. For the under one year old, a little, ten- to twelve-inch long, willowy branch (striped of any knots that might break the skin) about one-eighth inch diameter is sufficient. Sometimes alternatives have to be sought. A one-foot ruler, or its equivalent in a paddle, is a sufficient alternative. For the larger child, a belt or larger tree branch is effective.”
