    She didn't know they were putting him in the bag - I think her lack of knowledge is another issue being highlighted: parents don't ask enough questions when it comes to their children and how they're being cared for when they're not around . . . according to her in the article she sort of knew they used a bag as part of punishment and just assumed he rolled around on the bag like a sensory-stimulus to refocus him mentally.

    I think she's stupid - if someone told me 'we used a bag when your son acted out.' I'd immediately ask "what do you mean, how did you use it?"

    I'm not only taken aback at their treatment of children - but at the aprents and their overwhelming lack of knowledge and involvement.

    Geesh - just wow people.

    So lets not rush to judgement about this.

    However, if the school did something like this without the parents knowledge and consent, this is against federal regulations and the IEP process. So its a huge no-no and that teacher's certification should be looked at very closely.
    Well I tell you this: forget all this shrink crap and how it calms someone down cause they may feel as if they were in the womb or whatever bull**** babble they are calling it: kids should not be placed in bags. Period. Folks can quote any all bs about this working and I call it degrading as hell and abuse at most!

    Reminds me of blanket training babies and wrapping children up in blankets and then beating them! How the hell would you feel if someone tossed YOU in a garbage bag or ANY kind of bag to sooth you? Hell no. There are better ways and this bag therapy is crap. And degrading and insulting and wrong wrong wrong. You do not place humans in bags to calm them down. esp ones that cover the head.

    This reminds you of wrapping kids in blankets and beating them? Ummm... what?

    ...and if it works it is not BS.



    EDIT: No idea why your post does not show the second paragraph that I have quoted.

    Yes. It reminded me of this show I saw where extreme parents would wrap their kids in a blanket and beat them. The parents were fundies and thought it was fine. So yeah it made me think of that as it is all abuse.

    BTW. Yes. If ABUSE works? It is still B.S.

    I am not mocking you... you truly sound reasonable. Kill a person for putting your kid in a bag. Got it.

    Regarding abuse. You can call anything "abuse" if you like. Hearing my daughter learn to play the trumpet is abuse. Oh the horror.

    It was a school policy and the parents were dorks for not knowing this and they freaked.
