Michael Pearl Demonstrates Blanket Training

by at .  Updated at .

Jim Bob and Michelle are fans of a controversial child-rearing practice known as blanket training.

To critics, blanket training is nothing more than horrific child abuse.

The Duggars learned about blanket training from a self-proclaimed child psychology expert named Michael Pearl.

Pearl is the author of an infamous book entitled How to Train Up a Child.

According to the authors of the Patheos blog "No Longer Quivering":

"He talks of using 1/4 inch plastic plumbing pipe, a rod of correction, a wooden spoon, or paddle."

This video of Pearl describing his methods might be disturbing to some viewers.
