Apparently people are way more opinionated on this than I ever imagined. My son prefers his hair long and I like it, too. Still, he is CONSTANTLY being mistaken for a girl, which he realizes, but it doesn't really seem to upset him. It just gets awkward always having to correct people about my sons gender. My family or random strangers will tell me that I need to "cut his hair" and that he "doesn't look like a little boy SHOULD".
I seriously had no idea that people were so opinionated about boys having long hair. I just worry that he will internalize the negative comments and I certainly do not want that. At what point will his hair be "too long" or should I just let it grow until he decides he is ready to cut it? My original plan was to let it get as long as he wanted but now I am worried about all the negativity. I guess I should mention that we do get positive comments sometimes as well but the negative definitely outweigh them. He starts kindergarten next year and I would hate for him to get made fun of because he has long hair.
Do what I want or conform to society's standards of a boys hair? *sight*
What is your take on boys with long hair?
