Blanket training - great idea or bizarre form of discipline?

Has anyone ever done this?  

Blanket training is a child training method most recently in the news as a discipline method used by the Duggars.

Blanket training consists of 3 actions: (1) place a young child (usually an infant or toddler) on a small blanket, (2) tell that child not to move off the blanket, and (3) strike that child if they move off the blanket.

Seems like a parental control issue to me.

It's abusive. Why aren't they supposed to explore their environment? Isn't how they learn? Sounds do controlling for absolutely no reason

Blanket training is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard of, and the Duggars, or anyone that hits an infant or toddler is an idiot and should be punished accordingly.

It is abuse. Parents who want children who are afraid to explore never should have had children.

Sounds like a time out but striking the child is not acceptable to me.

The Duggars aren't acceptable to me. lol

ETA:  I missed the infant/toddler aspect until I read the OP again.

Unacceptable on all levels.  Control and abusive.

Quoting ResidentRedhead:

I totally missed the infant/toddler aspect until I read the OP again.

Holy hell.................

I've never heard of this blanket training until now.

I truly dislike the Duggars. lol
