Growing Kids the Ezzo Way - DANGER!
In one of my comments on my first article about Mike & Debi Pearl, I mentioned problems with Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo’s “Growing Families International.” A recent commenter asked if I could explain the problem.
I’m sure a search of the Internet would turn up lots of sites exposing the problems with GFI and the Ezzos, as well as sites by ardent followers (just like you’ll find with every cult).
My major problem with the entire program as described in a World magazine article, including the quotes from the Ezzos, is their very, very poor exegesis. They have no clue as to what the scriptures say. I have been studying the scriptures for close to forty years and never in all my studies have I ever come across such nonsense in an attempt to use the Bible to defend one's philosophy, except in the case of non-Christian cults. As well, the Ezzos smell very cultish in their child-rearing philosophy. I have to denounce it as not "Growing Kids God's Way", but, rather "Growing Kids the Ezzo Way".
