Bounding Boxes and Collisions

I’m trying to make sure that that the boxes that draw at start up stay in an area, so I creating a bounding box to define that space. I check to make sure that the a given box is in that area by checking to see if that box’s bounding box collides with the bounding box that I created to define the restricted space. However, running the collideWith method results in a excepting that indicates that checking collisions with a bounding box is not allowed. I understand what the error means, but I’m befuddled as to why collision detection between bounding boxes is not allowed. If someone could shed some light on this subject, I would be grateful. Thanks.

perhaps post your code so we can see
