I have a friend whose third son is named after her husband. Not odd at all.
Well, I was going to suggest baking soda, but I see you don't want to use that. Two of my kids swim many hours per week and baking soda works wonders at removing the chlorine from their hair. They mix it in with their shampoo, but I assume it would work on its own also.
When we added our 16 year old (he's 18 now) to our policy, it doubled our rate. It would have nearly tripled if he hadn't qualified for the good student discount. We use State Farm.
I am a sub also! The first thing I would try is enthusiastically praising those kids that are working independently. That might give him the message. If not, maybe try pointing out to him how the other kids are working at their desk and assure him that you know he can do it too, while giving him a bit of a cool reception (not mean, just not too warm/fuzzy) when he comes to you too much.
