That is what I was told bc I did blanket training.
FYI Blanket Training is NOT abuse, just like CIO is NOT abuse!
Yes I used "blanket training." Yes I put my children on a blanket w/a bunch of toys. If they got off the blanket I put them back on. No I did not hit them, I did not encourage them to get off the blanket just to "get them in trouble and break their spirit."
No I did not use a play pen/pack n play. I chose blanket training so I didn't have to lug a huge thing around, so my child could go room to room while I cleaned & I could still interact w/them. So I could shower & they were safe in the bathroom w/me (no I didn't always get a shower when they were sleeping).
30-45min a day on a blanket playing is not hurting them in anyway & no it was not all at once.
Blanket training was also used bc we camp a lot, easier to pack a blanket than a big thing. We go to the beach a lot & do picnics a lot so this worked out great.
Wanting "obedient" well behaved children does not mean I am breaking their spirit or treating them like dogs. I swear some of you women who want to say I am warped; I think you are warped for telling me I don't deserve my children, that I'm abusive & that my children can't wait to escape me. All bc I did "blanket training." Now that is warped!
Break their spirit? They are now 13 & 8 & I know for a fact that their spirits are not broken. They have always been curious children, they play sports, ride horses, go gymnastics, run around outside constantly, try new things. They are loving, caring, respectful, well behaved children. I see nothing wrong w/saying they are "obedient." If you don't like that word well I don't know what to tell you but they are good kids.
Now for the uneducated who for some unknown reason thinks this is abuse go ahead & continue to bash me & tell me I don't deserve my wonderful kids!!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blanket_training I did not set time aside just to train my child though.
http://www.aboverubies.net/2012/03/first-time-obedience-blanket-training.html Again, I did not set time aside to "train" it was just something we did in our routine.
Ok I could post more links but I'm not going to right now.
While these links have them setting time aside, I didn't do that or use a timer.
I posted the links bc a poster keeps giving false info so I wanted to clarify that "blanket training" does not equal hitting or scaring a baby or child.
