Thursday 21st August - Swiss Rules

J comes home telling me what he has been doing : agreeing the class rules of behaviour.

They all agreed these together, as a class. This is clearly a bit of positive psychology on the part of the teacher, and I perceive it as indoctrination of Swiss behaviour / rules / mutual agreement at the earliest stage, but it’s rather good, n’est-ce pas ? What can be more satisfying than being 9 years old and being able to determine your own rules of behaviour (I’m sure there must have been numerous prompts by the teacher but at least the class feel that they decided their rules rather than having someone else tell them. Ya boo sucks, rest of the world. Sound familiar ? Swiss, perhaps ?).
