One of my friends shared a link to a petition to get a book removed from Amazon: https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/amazon-remove-from-both-print-and-kindle-sale-to-train-up-a-child-turning-the-hearts-of-the-fathers-to-the-children
This is the book http://www.amazon.co.uk/To-Train-Up-Child-children/dp/1892112000
It's un-be-lieve-able. I can't believe someone actually wrote it, let alone that Amazon have it on sale!
This is an excerpt from one of the reviews (it might be sens to some)
"If your 10-month-old is pitching a fit because he wants to be picked up, then you must reinforce your command with a few stinging swats. You are not punishing him; you are causing him to associate his negative behavior with negative consequences. Never reward bad behavior with indifference. Tell the baby "No" and give him a swat. If your response is new, he may be offended and scream louder. But continue your normal activities as if you are unaffected. Wait one minute, and then tell the baby to stop crying. If he doesn't, again swat him on his bare legs. You don't need to undress him, turn him over, or make a big deal out of it. Just swat him where any skin is exposed. Continue to act as if you don't notice the fit. Wait two minutes and repeat. Continue until the baby realizes that this is getting worse not better. Most babies will keep it going for 3 or 4 times and then slide to a sitting position and sob it out."

What sort of people would write something like this?! There are other books by them too, I am utterly gobsmacked.

I can't read.

That's horrific! I can't believe the 5 star reviews on Amazon either!!

The 5 star review is for a reason, so they got to the top of the reviews to tell you not to buy it!
I want to 'swot' the writers about the head with their book and see how they like it.

There's some other 5 star reviews that don't do that though Sshh.

Ah, I didn't see those. They are probably all in the same cult or planted by the author. Shocking.

Have shared on FB as well. Was sure I signed a petition against this book years ago, sad that it is still available.

Speechless, I've only read your post, I'm not even going to look on amazon.
