Re: Boys and hair length, what do you do?

I may be in the minority, but I don't cut my kids hair unless they ask me to. When ds was tiny I used to cut his hair, and he would scream and cry and vomit. It was unbearable. You would have thought we were pulling his hair out not just trimming it. It never occured to me that it actually hurt him. Now that we know he has SPD I know that it actually causes him physical pain to have his hair cut. So his hair is now all the way down his back and absolutely gorgeous. When and if he asks for a haircut we will get it done. If I even suggest it he very adamently says no. With ds2 we won't cut his hair until he asks us to, though we may do just a tiny bit of evening out. I think it is their hair and they can decide how to wear it. My only rule is that if they want long hair it has to be taken care of. At your boys age they can do that themselves. I dont' believe in making decisions of this nature about another persons body, even if they are my kids.

And of course here are some pics of ds. Just cause I love to show him off. With his hair pulled back Hanging out in the baby's bumbo All of my boys
