Oy With the Swans Already by thecollegiatedork reviews Jess' second encounter with the local swan goes just about as well as the first.
SUPER fluff. She told me it was incase Jesus came through their rooms at night, saw their hands and decided to take the kids with him. In other words the kids would die in their sleep. It frightened the beejeezuz out of me. I had no children of my own at that time but years later when I did I used to do exactly the same thing. I guess the woman I had shared the house with had read this book as a child. Honestly these books sound horrid and I would never read something like that to my children.
Why would you jump on board with this strange ritual, years later with your own kids? Jesus is not the one you need to keep your kids away from. I read this story as a child whilst in the hospital. Imagine the demented healthcare professional who would do this to an already-scared kid! I wouldn't pull the bellcord for a nurse because I'd have had to raise my hand to reach it Sixty years ago for me.
I was seven years old, and my parents actually bought the complete set of "Uncle Arthur's Bedtime Stories. I think I understood them more as fairy tales than anything else, as my parents never talked to me about any of the stories, and so many of them dealt with miracles brought about by prayer. Hey gayspiritwarrior I notice and interesting thing in your post I see that number all the time and ive come to know it means I'm 65 and never forgot the boy who died with his arm raised.
Unfortunately, I was close to letting go of the "trauma" of the imagery until I found this site and, lo and behold, you supplied an image that is worse than the one I had provided my imagination! Thank you and goodnight. Only half kidding. But, it seemed so bizarre as a tale for children that I began to wonder where the elements of the story came from.
Thank you for making this site available. I also remember a photo of a thin man sitting up in iron framed bed. His face had disturbingly sunken features. Does anyone remember that? Maybe that was "Knocking Out the 'T'. He had a phone specially built into it, complete with inspirational message.
Another favorite: "Little Miss Tisn't," just because I never knew anyone who used the word "tisn't. My parents weren't religious, but I remember talking about it to my mom's church-going friend, and her trying to explain it away to me--obviously if she'd actually read it, she'd have understood my terror. I blocked it out for 32 years, until two weeks ago when my girlfriend was in a hospital room with a painting of Jesus on the wall Not the illustration from "Jesus Understood", thank God and suddenly it all came flooding back to me.
I can't tell you how relieved I was to find this post. Thanks for reassuring me that, not only did I not make this memory up, but yes, that story was as creepy as I remember. This one story in particular has always freaked me out. This story changed my life. I was in third grade when all I had to read as I waited in a doctors office for my allergy therapy was tis book. A bee sting had caused me to go into life threatening anaphyactic shock and I was in hospital for five nights. Afterward my family was aware thartmerely playing outside by the flowers could risk my life.
It was this story about bobby that helped me form my relationshiip with my saviour. My plan was that if a bee killed me that I would stay with jesus until my parents came to heaven. Later in life I had another crisis with a chronic illness that threatened my concept of life itself. I felt I had no future and I had to turn to. Christ not in fear of death Jesus came through as he promised and helped me recover and go beyond. In every way he understood. The whole point of the story was that you dont have to be perfect to loved and accepted by jesus As a child my mother read Uncle Arthur stories to us and the favourite of my sister and I was the story of the two girls whose first encounter began with an angry pillow fight but in the end it brought them together.
I don't remember any of the others or being traumatized by them. So, of course, when my children came along, I reached for these familiar tales. The first story I read to my elder two girls was the one that had been my favourite and it was instantly a hit with them as well. Emboldened, I moved on to another. It was the story of two boys playing cowboy and Indian who got into a terrible fight. Mother sits them down and tells them the story of the real cowboys and Indians and how they had to learn to get along.
At the end of the story, the boy playing the cowboy says that since he is the white man, it is up to him to be the noble one - to step out in good faith. As you might imagine, that story was quickly shelved and I started reading the stories for myself. The amount of patronizing in the tales towards those who were non-white, non-male, non-Christian and non-middle class was appalling.
Alas the series of stories had to be relegated to a shelf set aside for the dodgy next to "On Becoming a Man" and "On Becoming a Woman". I read this at my dentist's office as a grade schooler, then went in to see the dentist and experience PAIN as he drilled my teeth. Was there an association? I too was haunted by that drawing above with the boy's raised hand, as I forevermore associated it with death. I avoided that book at all costs. It's been half a century and I recall it vividly. And I still avoid it.
I remember reading that story at the doctor's office when I was a precocious child, rather advanced in the reading comprehension and rational thought department. I found it morbid, of course, and its placement in a doctor's waiting room inappropriate, but most unforgivably of all, it was illogical. Why would Tommy, but not the hospital staff, know that Bobby was dying? My grandmother was a nurse. I knew that if something was very wrong, there was a lot of activity and noise.
If Bobby was dying, where was his family, or at least a staff member? How was a dying boy capable of having such a calm, lengthy conversation? While propping his hand up, why not push the emergency button instead of leaving him there for rigor to set in? Above all, why would Jesus not know when a boy was ready for Heaven? The story was about Jesus, who, as I understood, was supposed to be the son of God. Such a being would know what was going on.
It would not be necessary to call his attention to anything. I began to suspect that the story was utter bullshit. At the same moment, I took a good look at that photo, started laughing and couldn't stop. My mother took the book, read the story and her mouth twisted into a hard, thin smile that wanted to be a laugh. She didn't say anything, just pretended nothing was going on. After that, every time we were at an office that had that book, I'd pounce on it, turn to some random story, and laugh while my mother pretended not to know me.
I wanted her to buy me those books so badly I would never be able to find such a story "moving" or "inspirational", and certainly not believable. Ridiculous, yes, and so sick as to be extremely funny, but nothing more. This is the story. THIS is the story. I have been looking for the source of this story fo ryears. Growing up as a kid in a small town in the 70s, every single doctor and dentist had this book or the related Bible For Kids volume in the waiting room.
Need a procedure? Read about little Bobby's death while you wait!! I have been unable, until now, to produce proof of this traumatic tale to any of my bigger-city peers. I too, have been haunted by this story since childhood. I sought this book out every time I went to the dentist and read it over and over.
I've never forgotten the story and just today decided to google the theme and see if I could find it. What a chuckle to see that so many of us were affected by this 'bedtime story'. As a grandmother of 4, I can assure you that - though I love to tell my grandchildren about Jesus - this story is not on my list! I think the main problem with these stories - the primary reason why they can be so frightening - is that they are exactly that. And lessons about life, death, and salvation are topics WAY too deep, important, and complex to squeeze into a few short anecdotal paragraphs.
There isn't enough room there for the definitions and fuller explanations that one would need to read between the lines. A young child just HAPPENING to read something like this, and unfamiliar with the theology, literary style, and denominational subculture behind it, is highly unlikely to understand it the way it was probably meant to be understood. They are called "Bedtime Stories" because they were intended for parents to read to their own children in the home, where they could be discussed, elaborated on, and used as starting points for facilitating a child's religious understanding.
I'm sure they were NOT intended to be a child's first or even primary introduction to Seventh-day Adventist theology; the church takes for granted that its parents are doing all they can, in every way, to make every moment a gospel learning opportunity. The fact that these books were scattered like straw in thousands of medical offices, to be read by confused children completely without contextual guidance, is probably a very well-meant error I think it's important to remember that "Uncle Arthur" was born in , and died in He was middle aged before antibiotics became widely available.
Even in the developed "first-world", children died at rates considered appalling today. Modern parents take for granted that their children will "grow out of" whatever irritating, obnoxious phase they're in, knowing that Neosporin, Lysol, and Motrin are there to fix most problems. A few generations ago, though, without the security and reassurance that modernity provides, a tolerant parent might well have proved a negligent parent. Adults frightened the children because THEY were scared - scared of losing them. Even in , we still eventually have to be more blunt with our children about why we want them to do or avoid certain things, when gentle coaxing and reward charts cease to motivate.
For the same reasons that lower socio-economic levels tend in general to be "harder" or "stricter" on their children: because they don't have the same resources at their disposal to dig their children out of problems with that better-off families may have. Context is SO important, but unfortunately, a kid in a dentist's office reading a story like this in isolation won't have that This dreadful story was more nightmare-inducing to me over the proceeding 5 decades than ANY horror movie ever could have been. I read this morbid little ditty when I was 4 in of course the doctor's office waiting for treatment for a significant childhood illness.
The office had just gotten the book in and I couldn't wait to read it. Until Jesus Understood. Yeah, maybe Jesus understood but I sure the bloody hell didn't. At my next appointment 2 weeks later, the braver part of me wanted to face my fear and read that story one more time Curiously, I couldn't find Jesus Understood. Upon closer inspection, I realized the pages were missing from the book. Perhaps another child's parent had complained, because the pages for this story were neatly and cleanly removed entirely from the book.
How unfortunate that through the years I've never been able to so cleanly erase the trauma this story brought to my 4-year-old mind. I've often wondered if I imagined this entire story and was telling my now adult daughter about it for the first time today. Low and behold through the wonderment of Google, I stumbled upon this site and see I'm not the first adult whose childhood was derogatorily impacted by Jesus Understood.
But here is what I don't understand: I can see a 4-year-old child being afraid, but you said you've been terrified for 50 years! Didn't new information about Jesus or death or modern medicine replace what you took in at the age of 4? The pages were missing from a lot of his books! Someone very angry tore out every page in every doctors office. It was like a conspiracy I wanted to scream I loved this story and I loved Jesus too. I was 5 the first time I read it.
By age 13 all the pages were torn out everywhere. When I turned 20, I drove around wanted to find a copy. Every Dr. Had the pages torn out! I'm 60 now and shocked at why Now this just doesn't make sense to me. I didn't remember the title of the story, so I Googled "uncle arthur's bedtime stories boy hospital ward holding hand up" and this site was 2nd on the list for me. The snippet showed the text " I too was haunted by that drawing above with the boy's raised hand, as I But how different the reason. I came here tonight looking for a short story for our church bulletin, and I have always remembered that story, the kindness of his little friend who helped him put his hand up when he didn't have the strength.
The simple faith in the gesture. When the thief on the cross said "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom", his was the same simple faith. He could do nothing else but ask. And his answer was immediate and affirmative. Staggered that anyone can mistake this story for anything other than evidence of a simple childlike faith in believing that if you ask you will receive. And this isn't me commenting as a 53 year old, this was me remembering the story read to me by my father as a bedtime story as a young boy before I could read.
I bet after seeing the different responses to this story, you had an even better topic for the church-bulletin story. Hello everyone! I'm 56 and I read this story so many years ago in the orthodontist's office I never forgot it! So powerful to a child's imagination that by propping up an arm you could.. I first heard this beautiful story when my friend read it to our grade two class. We read Uncle Arthur's stories to our children, and our daughter reads them to her daughter. It just dawned on me tonight, what if that story "Jesus Understood" was on the internet by some chance.
It was one of my favorites when I was about years old. I would always ask my Mum, if she could read me that one. My Mother would read it with such empathy, that I would have tears roll down my cheeks. She would say, "Poor little boy ay, but Jesus understood" and I would say "yeah, poor little ay Mummy". So i did a search and low and behold, here it was in story and also your video. LOL, thank you so much, now I understand, Jesus planted the seed of Salvation in my heart all the way back then and concluded with,,,, Tears rolling down my cheeks :.
Here is the story on Youtube. Make sure you have brushed your teeth before your bedtime story LOL. Are you kidding me? I read this at the doctors office in the 's and I' m still freaked out. I can never put my hand up in bed, and if I do when sleeping I instantly wake up. My husband got in bed laying on his side his hand was on the pillow facing up. I told him don't ever do that Jesus will come and get you.
I am 55 and Catholic and nothing I ever learned from church ever freaked me out like this crap. It's really amazing how many people were traumatized by this story. I was telling someone about it today over dinner, and they were almost in disbelief that a story like this would exist. I went to the wonderful inter webs, searched "jesus stories 's doctor's office" and behold, this page popped up first! I've been told that Grimm's Fairy Tales were just that in the beginning: grim, before Disney got ahold of them. Maybe Bobby and Tommy need to be "Disneyfied.
This horrible book of stories was in my late s and early s orthodontist's office: Dr. Edward Telch in Manhasset, NY. Even though it terrified me, I compulsively reached for it and read it every time I visited his office. With a nightbrace, followed by upper and lower braces, you can bet I read it dozens of times. As a Jewish kid, the thought of mistakenly having my arm propped up, erroneously signaling Jesus that I wanted to go with him, was terrifying to me.
I had nightmares every night after visiting Dr. Telch who was pretty scary too, not friendly and for several nights after, every time. To this day, I sleep on my stomach with my arms and hands pinned underneath my body. This story and Hollow Pie too remains vivid in my mind, more than 35 years later. Thank you to everyone who posted here. You make me feel better, and reassure me that it wasn't just me who was terrorized by this story. Talking about the dentist and avoiding sweets and treats: don't forget the story about Billy the greedy fat kid who always took the biggest and best of everything for himself.
Anyway so there was All Manner of little bite-and-a-half size pastries and caramels and bonbons and everyting you could imagine - and then there were a handful of three or four bite sizes of everything. Everybody else in on the joke took small ones and opened them and marveled at the delicious sauces and treats inside. Our boy Billy, true to form always took the biggest and best for himself - all of which were empty in the case of the pastries - just crust without even any butter or sugar - or made out of bitter baking chocolate and unsalted unsweetened caramel and on and on and on.
In the book of course Billy learns his lesson and goes about his life as a normal well adjusted boy. Sorry to say that in real life he becomes a Gainer member of The Society for the Portrait of Dorian Grey ends up a glutton and entering the Guinness Book as World's Fattest Man or becoming the runners up thereto.
I sho' ain't throwin all that away NOW. I read this story in my Mom's doctor's office when I was 10 years old. The story has always stuck with me! While it is haunting, I remember wishing Jesus would "understand" and take me to heaven too! My father had died the year before and my sister and family had moved away. I was very sad and lonely! I always felt God didn't take me because I was not hit by a car or in any physical pain.
Crazy what a story can do. I cannot believe it. I was just telling my mom about this story and The Hollow Pie, today! All you holier-than-thou people, listen to me: kids reading about kids dying is creepy. So stop with all the salvation and beautiful story stuff. To a kid, this story is kind of scary. I agree and couldn't have said it better! This stupid story has haunted me for years. Young children should not have been subjected to this book of nonsense in doctor's and dentist's offices, or anywhere else for that matter.
Why I decided to Google and find that this really was a story I had read and not something I had conjured up in my imagination tonight is because as I was trying to get comfy in my bed, I still to this day make sure that my arm isn't propped up in the air some way,somehow. It is something of a relief to see so many people have the same reaction and bad memory of it. I couldn't have said it better. This stupid story has haunted me for years and like many of the commenters, I thought perhaps I had made it up in my imagination.
For the umpteenth time while I was trying to get comfy in bed tonight, there I was again stopping myself from having my arm propped up or laying funny. Those books were a cruel thing to do to young children in the waiting rooms of dentists and doctors. At the age most of us read them at, we were not equipped whatsoever to understand any supposed context. I decided to Google and see if I could find anything about it and was so happy to come across this blog.
Again, like so many others I was convinced that maybe I had just imagined the whole thing. Uncle Arthur has apparently traumatized several generations of children. Unfortunately, kids DO die, at all ages. OMW as soon as I saw the image in google looking for hospital beds, I remembered this story, Yes, it haunted me for years, and as a kid, I would prop my hand up on a pillow in case I died during the night.
What really were we teaching our kids Thanks for the memories. I've never heard of Uncle Arthur's Bedtime Stories. I'm going to see if I can find a copy. These comments are hilarious! Like a lot of people here, this story has haunted me for years after I read it in a doctor's office as a little kid. I liked being scared, but this creepy story was too much even for me. Interesting that "Uncle Arthur" was apparently a 7th Day Adventist. I had a friend in grade school who was a member of that faith and he would give me a magazine called "Guide", published for pre-teens in the late 70s and early 80s.
While none of the "morality" stories were as horrifying as "Jesus Understood", many of them were similarly morbid and creepy. The intention of giving out this magazine may have been to proselytize, but for me they were entertaining in a pre-Stephen King sort of way! It's probably no coincidence that I'm thinking of "Jesus Understood" on Halloween!!!!
When I was a grade-schooler, this book was in my pediatrician's waiting room. What an inappropriate, horrifying story! But I was drawn to it every time I visited the doctor - I had a morbid fascination with it. And yes, I agree with many commenters, the story didn't make much sense. I knew that one needn't have to prop their hand up for Jesus to find them. He's omniscient, after all! But the propped-up hand sure makes a creepy illustration. I hadn't thought of this in 40 years, but for some reason it came to mind today, and I Googled it immediately.
Smother Goose was at the top of the search results! So great to find so many other traumatized individuals! So funny to read your synopsis of this story. I grew up on Uncle Arthur's. I still have one of the original books of my childhood, but unfortunately not the book that has this story. I have never had the urge to read any of these stories to my own children, because I feel like they gave me a very skewed view of Christianity when I was a kid. Growing up, my mom stressed that I should act in a way that would want other people to be Christians, though I don't think she ever concerned herself much with the image of Christianity she was teaching me.
I associate Uncle Arthur's with that sort of manipulative pretense I grew up with. It's a particular way of manipulating kids to stay in line. I talk to my own kids about God. And I expect a reasonable amount of obedience. But I've never felt comfortable mixing the two, by discussing God as a way of promoting their obedience to me. BTW, have you seen what these books sell for on Ebay? They're worth a fortune.
Going from Uncle Arthur to Unshackled kind of skewed my thinking about Christianity as well. I think it is still played on Family Radio. How do you think it skewed you? I also read this story in a Dr. It has followed me for over 40 years in my mind during some pretty bad times. I can personally say, that if you feel like giving up, and you prop up your arm during the night, you just wake up with a sore arm.
I experimented pretty heavily with arm-propping after this story. I figured: either Jesus takes me to heaven — for the "win" — or as consolation, I can be smug at my cleverness. Early tries all failed, come morning always woke with my arm elsewhere in the bed come morning. Maybe a year later, smarter, heavier, I tried again.
Next morning I woke and sent the usual telepathic summons for my hand to come up and pick my nose. Astonishingly — my hand neither arrived nor replied. My eyes popped open to see lifeless bloodless droopy hand like a flag of, of, droopiness, still raised to call Jesus. Struggled to sit up, failed, the arm toppling with a dull unfelt bang against the wall.
Oh "Jesus Understood" me alright, took my arm to heaven and left my cleverness to live. Jesus tumbled out of the closet, doubled over in his own agony of laughter. Or was that my brother. I didn't read it until I was 16 and I have to say that I never found it scary; just beautiful. I first read this story at age 8, and it helped me to have hope. It is when I first loved Jesus, for in my world adults were abusers and sexual predators, and I longed to leave this earth.
When I read the story,Jesus was my hero, my savior come to take me home. The story bought me peace that even should I die in my violent surroundings,I would be safe and loved with Jesus. And, when I die, I hope my hand is raised high. I have asked countless people if they remember this story. All I could remember was that it was in some kind of Bible book at the doctor's office.
I really thought I imagined it. I have always slept on my hands as a result. Thank you for validating my sanity about this. At least I know it exists. Like so many others I read this story as a child in a doctor's office. I found it very depressing. But now it's reassuring to know I wasn't the only child who found it traumatizing. Now people believe me about the creepy story! I never felt compelled to sleep on my hands, but the validation of a childhood memory is priceless!
I was also traumatized by these guilt-inducing morality tales as a child. I wrote a post about it on my blog and linked back to your two reviews. He comforts her by telling her that she won't be spanked again if she keeps Mother happy with her good behavior. What is "guilt inducing" in the summary you just gave? A brother comforting his sister, and reminding her to ask Jesus to help her be obedient? And obviously she won't be punished if she behaves well.
