Related to the Duggars by blood, Amy King has made it clear she doesn’t follow in the footsteps of her Counting On family. And, Amy King also once revealed she isn’t even allowed to visit her cousins unless Jim Bob Duggar is present to supervise. Moreover, some followers of the Counting On family believe staying in daddy Duggar’s good graces means keeping their distance from their cousin Amy.
Amy Duggar King throws shade at her family on Instagram.
The Duggar cousin threw a little shade at her Counting On family on Instagram yesterday. Amy King took to Instagram to announce blanket training was something she wasn’t interested in doing with her son (or any other children she might have). And, as those who follow the Duggar family know, they are very big on blanket training. So, we can only assume this was a subtle dig at her family.
“There is NO blanket training happening at this house!! I want my child to roam free and to feel safe doing so! I want him to explore and be curious and make messes!” Amy King penned in her very long Instagram post. Her post featured several snapshots revealing her home filled with Daxton’s toys scattered everywhere.
She, however, proceeded to reassure her fans that this did not mean she was giving her son too much freedom. She would be right there with him. To supervise and keep him safe. But, she did not want to limit her son to playing in small spaces.
“Dill and I believe that a blanket should be used for comfort only!!!” The mother-of-one insisted.
Children need love and acceptance and praise! They shouldn’t ever be controlled. And there’s a fine line between re- direction and abuse. Our child will not grow up being fearful!”
Her followers have a strong reaction to the post.
Noticeably, Derick Dillard who married into the Duggar family liked Amy King’s post about blanket training. As those who follow Derick and Amy know, the duo get along in their dislike of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. Derick, like Amy, has called the family out on social media a few times. Derick Dillard’s sister-in-law also liked Amy King’s post about blanket training.
The post accumulated 11,500 likes and nearly 1,000 comments. Unsurprisingly, her followers were pretty vocal about the topic of conversation.

There is NO blanket training happening at this house!! I want my child to roam free and to feel safe doing so! I want him to explore and be curious and make messes! Yes we will be right beside him every step of the way. Dill and I believe that a blanket should be used for comfort only!!! Children need love and acceptance and praise! They shouldn't ever be controlled. And there's a fine line between re- direction and abuse. Our child will not grow up being fearful!
“I’m so proud of you and what you stand for!! You’re such a good person and loving mama!! Love you and Dillon!!” One follower exclaimed in the comments.
Another agreed: “Blanket training sounds freaking horrible. Not in my house. Messes will clean but memories are forever.”
Others seemed to agree that blankets should be for comfort. And, that blanket training seemed abusive.
