My 6 year old had the child scissors out and was cutting hearts.

My 3 year old followed her into the kitchen and stayed in there as my 6 year old came out to show me the hearts. Unbeknownst to me, my 6 year old left the scissors on the counter and my 3 year old grabbed them.

She walks out 2 seconds later with the scissors against her head, then snips a huge lock of hair out. She then proceeds to pull the hair out of the scissors and put it BACK on her head!

What is it about scissors that make some kids automatically want to cut their own hair!?

  • Ballad, I cut my bangs off when I was little, too! I didn't want bangs anymore so I just cut them off lol.

     Kids probably want to cut their hair all the time, but since they're not going to pull their hair out, they jump at the chance when they get scissors lol.

  • I cut off my mom's friend's son's hair when I was 5. I knew I'd be in trouble if I cut my own, but why I didn't think I'd be in trouble for cutting his I couldn't tell you.

  • Yep, my oldest did that about a month before she turned 4. I'm now trying my hardest to keep my youngest from scissors.

  • Ahhh, the kids with sissors! Every child does it! I don't think that there is a kid in the world who does not think that they are beauticians..they cut their own hair, their dolls hair, friends hair in school..Yes, we still have photos of my cousin who wacked off her bangs to the top of her forehead - just before school photos!
