I grew up during the 60’s and 70’s. I don’t have anything against long hair. But, little boys should have little boy hair. There, I said it. A little bit of length is OK but this is ridiculous.
I doubt that the sons of Kate Hudson, Celine Dion, Cindy Crawford and Elle McPhereson are trying to make some sort of social statement with their hair. Either their parents are too wimpy to give the kids haircuts against their wishes or they are using their children as some sort of living canvas to prove what unconventional parents they are.
What does Celine have to say about her son’s hair? “Rene Charles makes his own decisions most of the time. My son makes his own decisions about his hair. I've asked him about 25 times, if not five million, 'Do you want mommy to open your face a little bit... Do you want me to trim a little bit?' No. When he's ready, I'll cut it. Anyway, my husband has no hair - so it balances out."
Well, letting your son make his own decisions may lead to trouble some day. I think. Maybe. Will you let him enter school only when he says he is ready? Does he decide what he will eat every day? Is he consulted on everything? That’s no way to parent, you nitwit. Quit asking him and start telling him he’s getting a hair cut.
Oh and Kate… if you’re going to make the kid wear long hair, at least run a comb through it. Unless you are trying to go for that cavekid look. If so, mission accomplished. You should have named him “Oog”.
I wager these boys will come home begging for haircuts once the schoolyard bullies get a hold of them. There’s something to be said for the normalizing influence of one’s peers.
I feel the same way about piercing the ears of little baby girls. Mothers who do this are treating their daughters like little dress up dolls to accessorize as they like, even if it means permanently altering their bodies.
