Michael Pearl and Extreme Child Discipline, Plus 'Miracle Dog' & Healthy Cooking with Rocco DiSpirito
Anderson speaks with Michael Pearl, the controversial preacher who claims in his book, “To Train Up a Child,” that God wants you to spank your kids. Pearl, who made headlines recently when his book was been found in the homes of several families whose kids have died after suffering terrible beatings and abuse, discusses with Anderson whether or not he feels any responsibility for what these families have done to their children. Anderson also speaks with a woman who used to adhere to Pearl’s methods -- and what she witnessed during teaching sessions. Anderson speaks with a leading psychologist to discuss their take on Pearl’s methods and the long-lasting physical and emotional damage it can cause.
Anderson also meets “Miracle Dog” Daniel, a beagle mix who survived an Alabama dog pound gas chamber, and speaks about his amazing survival with his new owner, Joe Dwyer, who recently adopted him.
Plus, celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito teaches Anderson how to prepare healthy dishes for the holidays.
