It's a unique incentive to be a part of children's lives.
Terrance Newton, the principal at Warner Elementary school in Wilmington, Delaware, had a unique idea to connect with his students and it appears to work wonders. In a unique experiment, this school principal has established a small barbershop within the school premises where he interacts with the students in a casual and informal manner while cutting or trimming their hair.
As reported by Delaware Online, he also allows other kids to wait in the shop as he chats with them and interacts with them at a personal level. This incentive is great because kids get to interact with the seniormost faculty member and can speak their minds in a safe environment. Coming from diverse backgrounds, this safe space creates a sense of care and promotes a nourishing environment that is extremely good for the morale of kids.
Needless to say, such incentives will help create a positive impact in the lives of these kids as they would be able to speak comfortably without being judged and become a part of a healthy communicative environment. And Mr. Newton is exactly the kind of mentor we need in this day and age.
