    I don't particularly like it and am always trying to convince him to cut it off but for the moment that's what he wants so why should I worry to much about it after all it's only hair and he's having a choice of what he wants instead of me dictating everything to him
    How old is your DS because honestly colored hair on a young children is truly awful, let alone a colour like blue!!!!! Letting kids make such choices to me is not great parenting! My kids want a lot if things but as the parent you make the call and say no!!!!

    Surf clothes or not if I saw your DS with a Mohawk and rats tail I would automatically think 'total bogan'!!!

    I do see where you are coming from, usually I also come from this POV after growing up with a very controlling parent that wouldn't let me be me. She picked my clothes until I was 14 and I hated it.

    It's a difficult one.

    Nope - would not be happening.

    I remember begging my mum for a spiral perm back in the early 90's. She finally relented, but the hairdresser refused as my hair is quite wavy naturally and she thought it would go crazy. At the time I was devastated, but now I think back with the biggest relief that there are none of THOSE photos around. (Plenty of others, but no spiral perm ones!)

    I did do my own version with mousse and crunchy hair, but at least it was temporary...

    There are some styles I look back on and think "Whyyyy did you let me do that???"

    That's exactly what I thought as I read the op!

    I do think people have been harsh. Its just a hairstyle. Not my cup of tea, but I see plenty of kids at school with them and I've never thought anything negative about it. Variety makes the world a more interesting place. It'd be boring without rats tails, mullets, goths, emos, surfie types, perms etc etc. I love that all the kids round here have different tastes.

    Yeah my point exactly. Wanting to cry and yell "leave the poor kids alone! Its just hair!" makes me think I might be oveetired and need to put bubhub down.

    I had that emo mullet haircut for awhile in my teens. Cut it myself and was heaps happy with it and then I got over it. Its usually just a phase for most people when they're able to choose their own hairstyle but if I ever had a son I wouldnt choose a mullet or ratty. If he grew up and decided to attempt one then by all means I wouldnt stop him but Id hope he wouldnt. Haha.
