Growing Kids God's Way
|“||The Bible encourages spanking but does not command it. ... We support its use because it is part of the wisdom literature of Proverbs and is used in conjunction with righteous training.||”|
|— Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo|
Growing Kids God's Way is notable for contrasting "biblical chastisement" with "cultural spanking," and recommending a flexible "Chastening Instrument." A word-of-mouth cottage industry developed to supply chastening instruments to graduates of the seminar.
