->''"''To Train Up A Child'' is, simply put, a handbook in child abuse in which the Pearls book advises parents to use objects like a quarter-inch plumbing tube to spank children and ''“break their will,”'' as well as to subject them to other forms of torture (such as putting children under a cold garden hose and advice that ''“a little fasting is good training”'') to ensure that they succumb to Jesus. The book has been linked to at least three child deaths, but according to the Pearls it is apparently a good way of teaching children arithmentics: ''“I have told a child I was going to give him 10 licks. I count out loud as I go … "'' It’s really an epic battle of the wills, like Jesus against Satan.
