How do you feel about it? There are crazies out there who abuse it, absolutely. But there are crazies out there who abuse all forms of discipline, so taken at face value, how do you feel about blanket training?
It seems like a reasonable idea. I give Jenny play time in her pack 'n' play 1-2 times each day, usually for 15-20 minutes each (morning shower and starting dinner). At some point, though, she will outgrow her pack 'n' play, and the question will be, "Now what?"
Obviously, if you are beating your child for not remaining on the blanket, that is abuse. Also, I think 45 minutes might be a long time for a toddler to hang out on a blanket. There are probably children out there for whom this will NEVER work, but I don't think it's emotionally abusive. It's just another way of teaching a boundary .
