    That's a fair point actually... "can I have pink hair" doesn't necessarily mean "can I dye my hair pink?". I wonder whether clip-in extensions, a wig, chalk etc. might have sufficed.

    Yeah exactly! My DD wanted to colour her hair but had no idea what hair dye actually involved... So chalk and clip ins were perfect. When she saw me doing mine I just told her this is how I colour my hair, and she had her stuff for hers. She didn't question it any further

    No. I wouldn't. I haven't read the article, but no.

    What I don't get about this is it's so easy to explain/fob off/trick 4 yr olds - why go through the hassle of actually dyeing their hair?

    She could have used food colouring & just said that's how it's done for little kids or just said that kids can't have hair dye as it's bad for them. 4 yr olds take what we say as gospel.

    I reckon this is more about the mum than the kid tbh - trying to prove she is fostering individuality and/or enjoying the drama it has created.

    Whatever happened to just saying no? It seems so many parents are afraid to say the 'n' word.

    Thankyou!! Exactly what I was getting at. So because the kid asked it must be done? What's wrong with saying no and having boundaries for a child of any age..

    I don't see anything wrong with allowing my kids to colour their hair. I just wouldn't use actual hair dye; those chemicals can burn adult scalps, I can only imagine what they'd do to the more sensitive skin of a kid.

    Chalks, food dye, clips, hair spray, etc I wouldn't have a problem with.

    Why does everyone assume just because she said yes to this the child gets everything she wants? We all have our boundaries. My girls can ask til the moon lands in my backyard for me to have their ears pierced and the answer will still be no. But I say yes to other things.

    This is a small snapshot of someone's life. No doubt she'd never make the mistake of sharing again.

    I think all of those methods are child appropriate and I would/have used them, although I would never send DD to school with colored hair unless it was a special theme day.
