Ezzo and the Moral Reasons Why

Reasons Why is joining in our Ezzo Week blogging with a post focused on normal development, shyness and the Ezzo's weird moral constructs.

Brian sums it up in Ezzo on the Shy Child:

"This may seem like a trite example but it is typical of the way Ezzo constructs his program. Good principles like respecting age(as he mentions in the last sentence) are twisted to fit Gary's own personal application of that principle and then he elevates it to a moral standard which never existed in the first place.

Don't say you haven't been warned."

Update: This Reasons Why post is included in this week's Christian Carnival.

This post is part of the Ezzo Week 2005 series focusing on Gary Ezzo's parenting teachings.

I recently debated Ezzo with someone on my message boards. She said that one couldn't follow Ezzo and give up their maternal instinct, that it's giving up that instinct (in re: to feeding, CIO, shyness, etc.) that REALLY causes the problem. I told her I thought that was very interesting since Ezzo states that we Mothers HAVE no instinct, and that all we have is an emotionalism that is to be ignored.

This drives me mad!
