It's guidance like this that makes these little children such a joy. They certainly aren't angels and they argue in the playground as children do and get upsides with one another but anti-social nastiness is simply not tolerated so it doesn't happen.  

I'd like to see Juffrou Zaan as Minister of Law and Order in the land, I have to say.
