What do you think? - Page 2

My preference would be to cut it but like the other woman it's not our business. I can't believe she said that. How rude.

I cut my son's bangs but that is all. He has long hair and is often mistaken for a girl..
I don't care.
your son is cute..and that woman was rude.

What a cutie! His hair reminds me of my own 18 month old dd - that most people mistake for a boy, lol! Bangs are a nightmare to deal with (we're in the process of growing out dd1's) so if you want to bypass that now, please do!!

He's totally wonderful, and the lady needs to butt the bleep out!

He's beautiful! I think I'm going to be another mom of long-haired a baby when mine is hatched. It's such gorgeous hair. That lady probably goes around flapping her stupid yap all over town without ever thinking about it. Don't take it personally.

If it were my kid, at that point I think I would have trimmed the bangs, but honestly it's your child...I would have never said anything to a mom about it.

To each their own, you know...

I would have said the same comment another poster said : "that woman needs to mind her business!"

As far as the hair style, I think little boys w/ long hair are cute, I would go out of my way to keep the bangs out of his eyes though, I would be afraid of hurting his eyesight.

I'd have pointed right back, and said at the same level of volume "look, that lady is really rude!"

Turn it into a rhyming game.

"That woman needs her trap shut."

If it gets in his face, I would cut it enough to keep it from doing so. Having my hair in my face really bugs me.

Ok you asked what I thought so here it is.

I think having long hair in the eyes is enough to drive me batty. I can see it bothers him also as he has his head tilted up so he can see better.
And personally long hair on boys/men is just wrong but or course thats IMO

As to that woman, WOW what a lack of manners! :

As I said before I keep his hair out of his eyes for the most part. If he is playing hard and rubbing his head all over things he pushes his hair down. I fix it for him. most of the time if it is in his eyes he doesn't seem to notice. For the pics I took I moved his hair down to show how long it really is.

I love long hair on most people. I normally have my hair long until a few weeks ago and I chopped it all off because it was looking bad at the ends. I don't feel right cutting it off. Dh said that he didn't want to get it cut either because then he would look funny

My son has hair down his back and I would be sorely tempted to tell that woman she needs a face lift or she needs a laryngectomy or something nasty.

If he were my child I would probably cut some bangs but leave the rest because it really bothers me to see hair covering faces and eyes.
I wouldn't say anything about it to a stranger no matter what I thought or do with my own child.

That's rude, and your child is cute! Now on the other, *I* am catching alot of flack, because ds is just 1 year and I have buzzed him twice. I just can't stand it. I like guys to have neat hair cuts. I told dh I'll keep my hair long (LONG) if he'll keep his cut!
