I was over on the Niednagel Facebook pages (I'm a little obsessed with them) and was thinking about Danielle Voeller Niednagel. I remembered that there had been some sort of scandal involving her father Jim, who was big with Gothard ministries, having an affair with his secretary and leaving his wife Lori and their 8 kids. I googled Jim and Lori and came upon a site that quoted some of their child-raising tips from a Gothard discussion group in 1999. The discussion group promotes blanket training, beating babies as young as six months, and not giving kids any time to play. Here is the site I got it off of: democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x4173778 The quoted discussion group is about half-way down the page. Here they talk about beating 6 month old babies Michelle Duggar talks about blanket training, but Lori Voeller explains exactly how it is done. Here Lori explains her views on play. I know we've covered a lot of what is said here, but I don't remember ever seeing this particular piece before. The cruelty and abuse I read about here makes me wonder about Danielle Voeller Niednagel and how she is raising her kids. I can only assume that she is implementing many of her parents' techniques. So sad.
I don't know why they avoid the big question of whether or not they spank. I just found this little gem from quiverfull.com: quiverfull.com/articles.php/id20/ And from their website circa 2005: http://web.archive.org/web/200507060601 ... m/faq.html
I read that they only discovered this 'wonderful' tool when they had Jed&Jer... so that means none of the older children were put through this particular form of torture. Then I realised that it's from the twins on down that we start referring to the children as 'howler monkeys'... I'm childless and don't know much about toddler's development, so is it likely that Blanket Training is a big part of why they are so raucous? Could it be that because they were denied stimulation they go crazy when they do have it, and consequently haven't learned the appropriate level of impulse control? Or is it merely poor parenting in general that has caused their behaviour?
Hi Everyone- I am back- moving is not fun and neither is waiting for the Charter guy (personally don't like Charter- rip off) I was trying to find a video or the episode- I apologize I don't have it But did you see that Michelle now teachers the 'little ones' on a chair to 'be still'? Is this the new blanket training? It made me mad. Let the poor kid run and play
