Whoo hoo!  Glad she's supportive of the PVC pipe...

Thanks for posting this!  I haven't visited her blog in a long time.  I used to read it everyday.  Those pictures of her new house are beautiful!  I would love to have a house just like that!

I found her blog years ago and have always enjoyed it. I am loving all the house posts! The future barn studio will be amazing! ( green with envy smiley!)

I was wondering what the issue was and which sponsor it involved. I'm glad she stands by her beliefs! YAY Amanda!

Sorry, I meant NOT supportive of the PVC pipe, should have re-read before I posted.

 

Some of the old Pearl stuff advocated visiting your local hardware store for a small bore PVC pipe to use in corporal punishment in place of the old-time switch.  It stings badly, but used "properly" won't leave long-standing bruises.  It's barbaric and inhumane.  I believe things have been edited and republished removing these references (their sales upped when a new generation parents came into the picture and didn't know that they used to do this.  My oldest is 12, books published around that time still had the "instructions".

OK now that makes sense LOL.  I read it like five times  and couldn't figure it out.

I've read Soulemama on and off for years, I even bought 'The Creative Family' book at one point.  I have to admit that I don't catch up with her blog as often as I once did and especially not at the weekends because I grew tired of all of the sponsorship links.  Still a wonderful place to visit though.smile.gif
