I bought "Baby Wise" AND a James Dobson book....

post #1 of 158

.... so no one else would.

Actually, there were THREE copies of Baby Wise along with the Dobson book at the thrift store. I'm torn about what to do with them now, but I feel as though maybe I stopped 3 new moms from reading - and following - their "techniques".

I always hide those books in the book store whenever I see them lol

put a new cover on them "how to be a rotton deranged parent" or "how NOT to raise happy healthy children"

I bough Ezzo at Goodwill to keep anyone else from getting it. I kept it for a while thinking I would read it and critique it myself, but eventually decided to throw it away as I figured it was a waste of my time and couldn't stomach the few pages I flipped through.

He is quite harsh, and all in the name of God.

Don't do put them in whole though otherwise someone might fish them out and read them.

Yeah, I would rip all of the pages off of the binding before recycling them, making sure to spread them out over a few weeks worth of recycling days so that nobody could mend them.

Get a puppy and paper train him with the pages

That is awesome that you bought those just to get rid of them! I'm going to have to start doing that...and hiding them in the bookstores; also a great idea. My friend in college had a baby and was completely sold on the babywise books...at the time, I didn't know enough to discourage her from using them, but it always broke my heart when she wouldn't feed her baby when he was crying b/c it wasn't time. Sorry. Hope that wasn't too tangential.

Anyway, good for you!

Really, it isn't. It doesn't accomplish anything in the long run, and is quite juvenile.

I know some who put a business card or bookmark in them with www.ezzo.info on them.

I know you mean well, but that is censorship. What if somebody decided to do that to Dr. Sear's books?

to you for saving some poor sweet baby from the torture held within those pages!!! Don't burn them! Do you have a paper shredder? Recycle! Then again I'm a bit of a :
