i figure this. it's hair it grows. now where i draw the line is traumatizing a kid when it is really really long and forcing them to get it cut really really short. I have been cutting my daughters hair since she was around 18 months. It was longer in the back and finer on the top. So we always kept the back neat and trimmed. As she has gotten older and it has thickened up, we have kept her fine, curly hair in a chin length bob. she wants to grow it out, but when she realizes that her curls go away, she ends back up with her bob. My MIL hates that I cut it. But honestly, she won't keep clips in her hair, yet hates her hair in her face. So why torture her. Honestly, I think that this whole hair thing is more about the parents feelings toward their kids hair than the kids.
