TW. Abuse, child abuse, ableism, 'discipline'

This is the last (part 6) of my live-tweet threads about To Train Up a Child by Michael and Debi Pearl, also talking openly about my own experience.

Mute if appropriate.
At the end of my last thread, I said a few things that I want to clarify first up.

I said that I never wanted the family to be separated as if staying together is the goal. That was quite a selfish way of speaking.

I'm continuing my live-tweet of To Train Up a Child by the Pearls

I ought to take a break, but I honestly only have a few more things to say about this *six thousand tweets later* and just one more thing...
I'm cooking some rice right now, chopped up some peppers and onions, gunna mix myself some spicy rice in a minute. I have the whole day off today, and going for a walk in a bit.

TW. Abuse, Christian 'discipline', ableism

I'm continuing my deep dive into both To Train Up a Child, by the Pearls, and my own childhood experiences of so-called Christian discipline.

Do mute this thread if it is going to be too much. I get it.

Part 3 of my live-tweet of To Train Up a Child by Michael and Debi Pearl. Do mute this thread if it is going to be picking at scabs that have already healed, give yourself grace, you don't have to go back.

#Exvangelical
Spoiler warning: The book only gets WORSE. I read ahead last night and had quite a visceral reaction to the content.

Something that I have picked up by sharing and speaking to others, is this:

It was real
It happened
It was systematic
It was wrong
You deserved better
