Ezzo ExposÚ Wins Gold

A chilling account of the "Babywise" method of childrearing designed by a controversial evangelical Christian minister. Looking at the results behind the recommendations, the writer uncovers guilt-ridden parents who discovered the treatment to be harmful. . . A gripping read.

And with that summary, Parenting Publications of America awarded a 2003 Gold Medal in Investigative Journalism to Cindy Webb and Betty Casey of TulsaKids Magazine.

Update: See Hubby's related post, More Offal from Ezzo. And Sam chimes in with her two cents.

That's fantastic! I thought Cindy Webb did a great job on that article. It was one of the best summaries of the Ezzo controversy I have ever seen. I still have a copy of the Tulsa Kids magazine with the orginal article. :-) And it's just so beautiful that it was in Tulsa, a big GKGW town. If I remember correctly, the article came out right before some kind of GFI leadership conference in Tulsa.

You still have the original? *grin* Cindy Webb is such a neat woman.

And you are right--it was published the same month that GFI had their leadership convention in Tulsa. A lot of people dismiss the information available about Ezzo because, "you can't believe everything you read online. . ." Which is true; you can't. But I've come across few sites that were as careful to back up statements with documentation as Ezzo.Info.

Thank you so much for the information you post about Ezzo. I don't think I've ever seen anything good written about him or his ideas. What I've read of his writings is certainly disturbing.
My heart breaks for all of the families who have tired his methods and have ended up doing more harm than good. I am also extremely angry that he continues in deceiving parents (especially mothers) about how God wants them to relate to their children.
I'm going to have to blog about this. Thanks again for your diligence.
