me and a co worker had a talk on this earlier today so i just wanted to get some other opinions.......not that it'll change my view, but an interesting topic.
i'm a fan of teaching my dd to be independent as she gets older. since she was in school, i have the firm belief that if her hair is too long or not a style SHE can keep up with..................she needs a different one. I'll do her hair for her on occassion but not regularly. this is how my mom raised me, i learned how to do make up, hair, simply how to be a woman on my own. I spent my elementary school days playing dress up. jr high, stayed up all night playing with my hair, etc. well dd is ALWAYS going to school with her hair looking like crap, pulling it up in a half ass pony tail......yes she has a mirror in her room, brush, comb, all the "needs" to fix her hair RIGHT.
so when did or have you stopped helpign your child do their hair and at what point to do you make them learn how to be independent?
