Kids and trauma: Science trumps handcuffs

Janet Rosenzweig, vice president for programs and research for Prevent Child Abuse America, offers her thoughts on the recently released video showing a Kentucky deputy sheriff handcuffing an eight-year-old boy with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

She calls the video “almost a caricature of how not to deal with children,” and says it should prompt parents to ask one question: Even if the personnel at my child’s school wouldn’t think of calling the police if he acted out, would they know the right way to handle him?

Read her commentary here.
