Babywise, Growing Kids God's Way [GKGW] and other parenting programs developed by Gary Ezzo and Anne Marie Ezzo are marketed through the Ezzos' for-profit organization, Growing Families International [GFI].
Churches promote the Ezzos' parenting classes and parents enthusiastically spread the word about these books and classes that promise to end sleepless nights for parents while developing virtue in babies and children.
These programs have many ardent adherents who view the Ezzos as rescuing them from a chaotic family life ruled by undisciplined children that other families who don't use their methods must surely experience.
Yet health-care professionals and notable Christian leaders have expressed strong concerns and even alarm about these programs.
