Some of those kids can really nut out but I don't think putting him in a duffel bag is a good idea. There has to be a better way.

I used to drive a wheelchair bus for Security Taxi from 2000-03,carrying wheelchair passengers and special needs adults to doctor's appointments and to workshops to spend the day.
Though I had problems with some of my passengers acting out during the trip,I'd always tell them,"You don't know how to be bad" as I'd try to help them calm down from whatever set them off at the time.
I didn't hold it against them and CERTAINLY wouldn't have used a duffel bag as a punsihment or restraint.At my level,restraints were forbidden so I had to think of other ways to control the situation.
The one case of abuse where A residential caretaker struck a client was reported to my office and to the workshop the client attended just as soon as I got to my cell phone on the bus.That caretaker was gone that afternoon and had nothing nice to say when I bumped into her in town later on.
