The Punishment Fits Crime
How do you punish an autistic child that is so obsessive/compulsive you're not sure if he can stop himself?
What do you do when putting him in a chair or corner doesn't work for a time out because he can escape or tip the chair over?
You lock him in his baby swing. The one he's been too big for now for over two years.
And sometimes he's so exhausted from running around the house all day destroying things and wreaking havoc like the Tazmanian Devil that he craps out and falls asleep...drumming up more energy for later.
