how do you get a friend to cut her boys hair??

my friends lil boy is almost 2 never had a hair cut and looks like a girl.. she lets him get all sweaty and doesnt thing that if she cut his hair he would be a bit cooler..

I have told her and asked her and even offered to cut his hair and she says no.. she doesnt brush it or tie it back or anything. It looks bad and he is soooo sweaty and hot..

How do I get her to see she is tourturing that poor baby boy..

her excuse is if I cut it hes not my baby anymore... Com'on.. kids grow up but you cant make him suffer

  • My oldest had BEAUTIFUL hair. cute and curly and just out of control. ...he got his first hair cut after his first birthday. and in my family it is tradition to keep the hair from the first hair cut. so that's exactly what we do.

    And cutting his hair WILL help him stay cooler.

  • For a boy, I feel it's important to cut his hair. He is going to grow up and if she's really upset about it, she can keep a few locks of his curly hair! That's what I did when I first cut my dd's hair!!! Poor boy!!! My daughter has long hair (down to the middle of her back at 20 mo) and if I don't tie it back or anything it drives her crazy!!! She always wears something in it... and your friend probably won't put anything in his hair because it would make him look "girlish" in her opinion. Does she complain about people calling him a her????

  • It's her kid. And being sweaty is not the worst thing in the world. Let her parent the way she wants.

  • I don't think it is anyones place to decide if he needs a hair cut. So what if he gets mistaken for a girl, my son did to and he didn't care. Just because your preference would be for it to be short doesn't mean that that mom should cut his hair.

  • Although it would personally drive me crazy if it were my child, I do know of people who let their little boys hair go for a long while. She will cut it when she (or he) gets ready. Sweaty looks uncomfortable, but it's not torture, really. Don't focus on it too much, let it go, especially if she's a good friend. JMHO.

  • It's

    Do you feel that every parent of a little girl with long hair is "torturing" their child by not cutting her hair, or only the boys?

  • she must be attatched to it and love it a lot. when it bothers him, he'll tell her and then she'll trim in. it's totally her right.

  • Didn't like the answers the first time you asked this question?

    It still isn't your place to say or do anything. It's not your kid.
