Wha-wha-wha-WTF?!!?!?!?

Oh, Mama don’t play that!  Don’t be putting my baby in no claustrophobia inducing box!

Can’t these fools think of a better way to help this child calm down during transitions?

I know Ronan’s teacher has several sane options that she could share with them.  What about a timer, a PECS schedule, a school rules board focusing on positive reinforcement, or even a calm down spot – something less similar to a dog cage.

I’m all for “you need to sit here until you calm down” – even if I have to sit with him, or keep putting him back on the calm down spot repeatedly. 

But, really, is this necessary?

Thoughts?
