  assert(() {
    if (child is! ChildType) {

        'RenderObjects expect specific types of children because they '
        'coordinate with their children during layout and paint. For '
        'example, a RenderSliver cannot be the child of a RenderBox because '
        'a RenderSliver does not understand the RenderBox layout protocol.\n'
