Student in Time Out Commits Suicide


Does your school district use ‘time-out’ with your special needs child? Do you know how your school district defines ‘time-out’? Read this story from CNN.com, and I bet you will start asking questions. I know I will.

They've been doing this for years in our state.

When Big Kid was a little guy, I literally told the school---"if he's disruptive and needs a time out, you call me and I'll come get him.

If you EVER put him in one of those closets I will rip your head off and sh*t down your neck."

They're just horrible.

I read that story a couple days ago and I'm glad that I did read it long before we get to school age. It is quite scary!
