This is extremely wrong, you are essentially killing the birds choice by doing this. It is just like if I crippling an artist, just so that I can get my work done by force, against his choice.#1:
You shouldn’t allow him to perch that high now. This is very bad for training.
If he climbed up those curtains, move or fold them so he can’t. If he flew up there, I recommend having his wings clipped. It doesn’t hurt them, and the feathers grow back.
Many owners are against clipping, and I disagree with them. At the very least, clip him now so he’s dependent on you, to get on your hand and move him around the house. Birds generally like to be up higher, and not walk on the floor. But...not all birds.
Have you had the bird on your hand yet, or on a perch you’re holding?

That being said, I have a clipped conure (I got him that way from the shop and by no means support it), and it is extremely sad to see him getting stressed over the fact that he can't go to a place by himself and needs someone to drop him there. I can't wait for the day that he regains his flights.
