comment What can be done when a child cuts his or her hair?
-1 Removing scissors from the house is not a logical consequence. Scissors can be found almost anywhere - school, friends houses.

comment Why is my baby suddenly screaming in the bath?
If you are showing with your baby, if they are wearing a shirt, they aren't as slippery.

Depends on the school. In the public system, most teachers welcomed the help. In the Montessori schools we have been involved in (3), they asked for volunteers for very specific things, usually just field trips, not in the classroom. They did, however, have scheduled classroom visitations. They also had much lower student/teacher ratios (8:1, 11:2).
