I am asking because I feel it is better to have a nicely groomed child ... and I say this as a mom who lets her kids play in mud.
I fix my daughters hair everyday ( unless she doesnt feel good) ... she will be 5 soon and I have done it since she was a year old ( when she actually grew her hair lol ) ... I usually do a couple bands ( those little non snag rubber bands), or pigtails or just a bow with her bangs pulled back....
My daughter has never said she doesnt want her hair fixed, she has never had any kind of skin / head irritation ...
But yet now I am getting "insulted" because I am "making it to where my daughter will only thinks looks are important" and " taking her childhood away by spending time doing her hair"
Even though, besides fixing her hair and brushing her teeth she never looks in a mirror....
It just bugs me that EVERYTHING I do with MY child has to bug someone and is stepping on someones toes...

my dd hates it when i do her hair but, i try to do it everyday. Once in a while when i am really tired i will not feel like "fighting" her about it though. Whatever works for you and your kid. Screw everyone else.
