I dont necessarily see it as a 'punishment', but i am hoping it will help him to understand that he needs to take better care of himself...
My son has beautiful shoulder length blonde hair which he and everyone loves. the problem is, he refuses to take care of it. He hates me to brush it, and will not make any effort to really clean it in the shower. Since I am busy with 2 babies, I cannot monitor his every waking moment in the shower, and I refuse to wash his hair for him as I have showed him and instructed him countless times in how to wash and rinse it properly.
I am tired of his hair being stinky and and unkempt, and I have threatened already that if he doesnt want to take care of it, it gets cut off. Well, we are at that point. Would it be so terrible for me to cut it off? I always follow through with ym word, but I am having a hard time convincing myself to cut of those lovely locks.
