  • What a wonderful statement your son is making! Ignore the ignorant people. YOU and your son know why his hair is like that, and that's all that matters. Sheesh- judgmental people!

  • That's what you need to do: make them feel stupid and embarassed for opening their mouths about something they know nothing about. I think that's a very compassionate and wonderful thing your son and the other boys did. I'm proud they did that and proud that you as parents let them, since some parents wouldn't. Good for all of you!

  • Wow, your son is going to grow up to be a very good man. In the spirit of the gesture, when people make rude comments, educate them. If I saw a kid wih his haior shaved into a cross I would think it was weird, that is until I knew why it was there.

  • Some people just seem to refuse to accept that there is a whole world outside their doors. Maybe you could have some literature about the issue in your purse. So when such a person is being rude you just hand them the paper / brochure and walk away. Make it really bright and if possible big enough so that a casual passer by might see it and in turn give 'em a 'boy are U dumb, dude' look! When they read it they will feel awful. I see weird stuff all the time and try not to jump to conclusions.
    Good for those concerned kids!

  • That's SOOOO sweet!! I'll never understand why people feel the need to belittle someone else because they "look" different. Those people totally lack social skills, lol.

  • I'd smile and look them right in the eye and say I fully support my son in his decision to shave his head as a way for him to support a friend with cancer. Is that okay with you. Smile and walk away letting them know their the arse in this conversation.

  • that is an AMAZING thing your son did! make sure you take LOTS of pictures os he can remember and share with his children when he is older.
    and i agree with the PP: "I'd smile and look them right in the eye and say I fully support my son in his decision to shave his head as a way for him to support a friend with cancer. "
    :) way to go mom for letting him!
