The Restraint

Now, this comic really isn't very funny at all. Kids with behavioral challenges are often on the receiving end of physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints and locked-door seclusion.  And, regrettably, there are still people who think these procedures are "therapeutic" (even though several children and adolescents die each year as a result of such procedures).  In fact, such procedures are usually just acts of desperation that are employed because a child's lagging skills and unsolved problems haven't yet been identified, adults are still viewing the child's challenges through obsolete lenses, and intervention is still primarily emergent (rather than proactive) and punitive (rather than collaborative).

And they thought they didn’t have the time or staffing for Collaborative Problem Solving.
