REFLEXOLOGY TO CALM UNRULY CHILDREN
They’re spending £90,000 in London to tickle the feet of unruly children.
Glory be, My Back Cat.
Just watch this wibble spread around the country!
Just work out what it will cost the taxpayer!
“Disruptive schoolchildren in south London will be given foot massages by therapists to help get their aggressiveness under control.
Reflexologists will visit 74 primary and secondary schools in Lambeth and tend to children under 13.
Lambeth Council has budgeted £90,000 next year for reflexologists from London-based charity Bud Umbrella.
The council said it makes “no apologies for using different and innovative methods” to tackle aggressive children.”
We have a better, more permanent plan.
Don’t we, My Black Cat?
More fully trained teachers, smaller classes.
And lots of enthusiastic activity to dampen down the restless ones and keep the indolent ones from getting fat.
That should do the trick!
Reflexology, my foot!
Innnovation, my foot!
“We need to deal with the root causes of young people’s behavioural problems and nip them in the bud” Lambeth Council spokeswoman
True, but where is the evidence from sound peer reviewed journals that tickling feet will do this, Ms Lambeth Council Spokeswoman?
Or is the “evidence” more to do with your own reflexology pamperings to make you feel good because it takes you out of the rat-race for an afternoon?
