Wow, I have never heard of someone waiting for a child to be ble to consent to having a hair cut.
You momma's are so repectful. I am in awe.
(I consented to someone cutting open my child's head and drilling in her skull!)
Student mama to Lyra June ( 10.24.09) and Olive Isis (12.12.11)
Some mamas feel that since hair is a part of their child's body, that it is up to the child when and if they want to have it cut (it's along the lines of bodliy integrity). While I respect that Pview and people who hold that it, I personally do not hold that viewpoint. Although I do feel that when DS is old enough to say whether or not he wants it cut, then we will have a discussion about taking care of it... and if he CAN'T take care of it long, then he will have to let me do it or consent to getting it cut.
(and I consented to having someone cut open my child's chest and saw through his sternum, but that's really a whole other topic and different from moms not wanting to cut their child's hair before their child can give consent)
spread a lot of love
Honestly, I think that this whole hair thing is more about the parents feelings toward their kids hair than the kids.
