I'm white and DH is black. We have a beautiful daughter. Lately, I've been really stressed out over hair hair. I can't do the pretty hairstyles that her cousins usually have (braids, twists etc). I feel like she'll resent me later on because of this. I'm worried I'll end up ruining her hair. I can't even make a straight part! I feel like a failure. Especially since black women always put down white women who can't do their mixed race child's hair properly. My DHs ex actually said I'm a bad mom because I don't know how to do my daughters hair and as a mother that is something I should know.
I try to practice but I just can't do it. I could never even do my own hair. It's just something I'm not good at :( whenever I try, I get really stressed out and upset. I don't get why it upsets me so much but it really is lately!
