I would be tempted to sneak into her room and cut her hair while she was sleeping.
If she took care of it, it would be up to her.
i will NOT show this to my boy… AH!!! ! you can’t cut my hair!!!!
If she feels that strongly about it, respect her hair then. My older brother had to fight my parents and society to keep his hair long. RIP Eddy bro.
I feel for her. I think her parents should let her keep her hair. And I am old enough to be her grandma.
My 5yr old dosen’t have this problem she keeps cutting her own hair. If cutting this girls hair is a problem mabe her e her parents can talk her into donating it!!
Really? You think she’s mostly concerned with the waste?
Awe. This reminds me of how much I hated being a kid.
That’s AWWWWWWWWW. No E.
Oh, the treacly drama of which little girls are so capable!
What a wonderful way to get her to behave herself and do well in school! Bless her.
Yes, it is her hair. But at 9, is she taking care of it? How many long, stringy haired girls have you seen running around looking like it hasn’t been brushed in days? A lot of parents will make kids get a hair cut to avoid the ragamuffin look during the stage that they are taking care of it, but not doing a very good job of it!
Good point, Christy. (-:
Plus, it could just be that she’s getting a trim.
Maybe, maybe not. So what? If the child feels strongly enough, why not give her the freedom to express her personality through her hair?
I think that the parents should respect their daughter. Obviously this is part of her identity – and being that she feels so strongly about it – I feel that it would be extremely cruel of the parents, (not to mention traumatizing to their daughter,) to have her hair cut off against her will.
Is no one impressed by the extreme ability to manipulate evidenced by this note? Cut the hair, and nip that manipulation in the bud.
“I guess you don’t love me enough ….” Bullhockey. Give in to that ploy, and then you won’t love her enough to give her candy instead of supper, and to let her date at ten, and to let her loser boyfriend move in when they’re sixteen.
Manipulation isn’t cute, no matter how old (or young) they are. Sure, respect the daughter’s individuality, her identity, her body – but not when she’s resorted to this kind of emotional blackmail, and not when she’s not respecting that a parent’s final say is the final say.
We’re not talking about “candy for supper” or any other lame excuse; we’re talking about her body image and self-confidence. You clearly don’t get it.
Melly has a point.
There are so many variables we don’t know about. Parents are too lax and easily manipulated.
I’m not entirely sure I buy that this was written by a 9 year old. The handwriting is particularly confident, more like it was manipulated to seem young and the grammar is perfect. Of course it could just be a 9 year old with good grammar and handwriting but it’s awfully eloquent.
And “buckets of tears” seems like an unusually mature idea for a 9 year old. I figure most would just draw “themselves” crying or something similar.
Also the arrow on the far left is a short hand arrow, as opposed to the one on the right which seems “childish”
OF COURSE I COULD JUST BE OVERTHINKIN’ THIS
*far right is short hand and left is “childish”
screwed that up
To j: Have you been around any 9 year olds lately? Believe me, they are perfectly capable of writing stuff like this. I’m smiling about the “buckets of tears” because my own (now 27 yr old) daughter used to do stuff like that. Working on her dad’s sympathies, you see….LOL.
She’s 9. Let her keep her hair. Unless she’s tripping on it, or operating heavy machinery.
This could very well be from a boy. What makes you think it’s from a girl?
my son when was 15 years old his father took him to the barber shop
he ran out hollering no way!!!!!
