For those of you who are reading this who are parents, you know very well that adolescence is one of the most difficult times to manage with your child. One no longer belongs to the world of childhood, but one is not yet an adult; this involves developing self care and trying to manage a series of significant physical and psychological transformations. From changing voice to the changing body shape, from the awakening hormones to worries about an appearance that can seem quite alien to us.

I played college basketball and cut my teammates' hair before games and I've cut my son's hair for 17 years so I had professional scissors and shavers at home, so I said to him, 'If I go home and get my scissors and trim your hair the way you like it, will you go back to class?' and he replied: "Yes, I will!"

Eventually, Jason Smith cut and fixed up the boy's hair right there in his office, trying to understand the reasons behind the boys behavior and avoiding an unnecessary lecture or punishment. On the other hand, the kind principal knows well that adolescence is truly a very special period in a boy's life: talking to him and humoring him was definitely the most ... humane solution!
