I'm doing a live-tweet thread of 'To Train Up a Child', by the Pearls, so TW for abuse, 'discipline' and evangelical extremes. Definitely go ahead and mute this whole thread/conversation as it will likely be brutal, and I'm talking about my childhood too. #exvangelical
Fair admission, I have an early(ish) edition and they MAY have changed some of the content in later prints such as the one on the right (which I remember my parents owning). The first print was in 1994 — this copy, the 11th print, 1999.
Second point, this book alone cannot be blamed for my parents behaviour. I don't know if they had the book first, or if it backed up their own understanding. But even a flick through has re-enforced my memories of what it was like growing up in an Authoritarian household.
