Mother Demands Answers After 8-Year-Old Son Put In Restraints And Injected On First Day Of School

By unchecked /
Debbie Kiroff, mother to an eight-year-old son with behavioral issues, has spoken about the treatment her son received from Holland Landing Public School and Southlake Regional Health Centre.

Her son had an argument with another classmate about using the computer. Staff at the school contacted Kiroff, who was in the middle of her work shift at the time, requesting that she come and pick up her son on account of his behavior. The principal told Kiroff that her son had a ruler and was climbing on several things inside the classroom.

Kiroff informed the school that her son often dealt with problems by running away. Though, when Kiroff’s son ran out of the classroom, staff had called the police.

When contacted by CBC for an interview, spokesperson Licinio Miguelo said, “In any situation where a child’s safety may be at risk, we have a duty to report and immediately contact the police. We undertake every effort to ensure that our students are in an environment that is safe and welcoming for all.”

Unable to leave work, Kiroff called her daughter to pick up the boy instead. When her daughter got there, she phoned Kiroff to tell her that her son had been placed in a police car and taken to a hospital on account of his anger.

When Kiroff arrived at Southlake Regional Health Centre, hospital staff told her that he was out of control and needed to be restrained and given a sedative.
