I am a mother of 2 one with Autism and one without. There'ssome children that need to be redirected because of a situation where they may hurt themselves or someone else but, there should NEVER, EVER be a restraint technique used on a child to wear you make them bleed or break their bones. Why cant a calming spot be used to help with whatever may have cause their anger. Has anyone figured out what triggers these meltdowns?! Is it a change in schedule,?, How about something at home?, maybe a loss of a family member or pet? Why not try and figure out a better way to help these children out?
