  • I wonder if it is the child's wishes or the parents.

  • Honestly, I don't think much about it. It's hair, whatever the wacky style, it can be changed as it grows.

  • My son has a mohawk right now and he loves it. I wont dye my kids hair though. When they're in high school they can dye their hair. Right now it's so perfect.

  • A differnet color I don't agree with just b/c it damages the hair, but I think any cut is fine. It shows the parent isn't so afraid of people's opinions that they don't let their child express themselves.

  • My boys beg and beg to have Mohawks. For 2 weeks every summer (right after school lets out) I'll let them have them, of course they're only 8 & 7 so they think it's really cool!

  • It really is just hair. I have a friend who's son has a mohawk and he thinks it is the coolest thing when daddy puts gel in his hair.
