Im in a blog-war i guess. I try to not read what i don't believe in (gfcf, biomedical etc). I've been down those roads.. i know what the scenery looks like. I refuse to drink your kool-aid.
So this morning someone posted something about 'hey look at this' or whatever. I don't even remember how i got there.
Anyhow, there was this video. So I clicked play-
I saw this and was confused. First I thought, "how can i get one of those!!!!???" (it's not easy being home alone with both kids when Tommy loses control. I usually end up at the ER or the Dr.s office) So then, I read what the person is saying about these. How they're so horrible. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!!?! Horrible?? Have you ever tried to restrain a 200 pound man-child?! So, we're going back and forth.. i'm trying to REASON with this person(s) of how this is a USEFUL TOOL for those of us with aggressive ADULTS. (thinking maybe this is a mom of a younger child that has absolutely no concept of what puberty is going to do to her child(ren))
My bad, there i go trying to be nice again. Still struggling with learning that lesson. Then i get this response--
We wrote of our horror at the thought that rather than using other alternatives, this school appears to be jumping to a full restraint use. The horror is for the children who should be capable of being better assisted; if the school can't provide the quality intervention that allows for alternatives to physical restraints then the child is inappropriately placed. (she's clueless to where my son attends school apparently lmao!) And if the child is so severe that physical restraints are it, the child doesn't belong at home or in the school until the aggression can be managed better. There are other ways. Unfortunately they take time, training, research-just to name a few. Unfortunately, that is not what is offered in many schools.
Oh i wish i believed in Jesus.. so I could use the term "oh lord.. help me jesus".. Since I don't.. i'll quote Homer Simpson.
HELP ME JEBUS!
Some people just disgust me. I can't even waste my time with this bullshit today. It just PISSES me off how close minded people are. Let's just NICE autism away.. thats the ticket. YEAH! *rolls eyes*
