How One Mama Got Involved With GFI

A huge part of my almost 15 years of parenting has involved the Ezzos. I have either been using their materials, heavily involved in their organization, questioning their ethics, or opposing them, pretty much in that order. This is the first of what I am sure will be many blogs on the subject. . . . Here’s part one, “How I got involved with GFI.”

This is the first of a series of posts by a former Ezzo/GFI Contact Mom. ChewyMom really explains how for Ezzo families, it's not simply a feeding/sleeping routine at stake, but their child's whole future:

I could look ahead and see that if I gave in by 5 minutes this feeding, and that continued all day, the whole schedule would be thrown off, and then the nights would get messed up, and the week would be off, and then the month, the year, his whole life would be a mess! So, I kept to that 3-hour schedule faithfully.

Read the whole post.

Wow, TG, you sure can generate a lot of traffic! Thanks for the plug! Speaking of plugs, I'm still "plugging away" at my GFI blogs....

I appreciate the Ezzo work you have been doing here. I tutor at a homeschool co-op for high schoolers and we are "reaping" the "benefits" of GFI. Poor kids - outside of their parents' total control, they have no self-control or sense of being of their own. They have difficulty making wise decisions when faced with even the mildest temptations. They cannot think for themselves and are very insecure and unsure of themselves and who God has called them to be. Ironically, just the opposite of what their parents had hoped for... I try to warn new parents, but the stuff is still rampant in the Church. Keep up the good work.
