Tennessee pastor Michael Pearl, 66, authored a book for parents called"To Train Up a Child". The book, 670,000 copies strong, teaches parents to use corporal punishment to teach children to "submit to authority". However, recent cases of child deaths have put Pearl's teachings in the limelight. The concern is that parents will take the teachings to the extreme. For example, a Washington couple is being investigated for the death of their adopted daughter, Hana. She was found in her parents' backyard, she died of hypothermia and malnutrition. In his book, Pearl states, "a little fasting is good training".
