Hairdressing without tantrums. Or at Tantrum. Or something.

Nice video here

I just wish they hadn't called the shop "Tantrum" since the whole point, surely, is that this is a place one can take a child to have a haircut which they will really enjoy.

The revolving door of school exclusion

this article caught my eye.

The solutions I see to this problem are certainly too out there for our society.

Stop having schools being compulsory (to all intents and purposes) to the majority of children.

Stop having state funded schools. If people want to run schools, and children want to attend them, let them reach their own arrangements as to the financial recompense and the code of behaviour to be accepted by all parties concerned.
