aww honey! when you see her tell her how PRETTY SHE LOOKS and how much you love her, that you are glad she didnt get hurt using the scissors and next time please ask an adult for help if she cant reach. maybe take her to a hair stylist to get it evened out if it needs it. but keep praising her on how pertty and fresh the new hair cut is. etc. etc. build her up. dont let her know you are upset inside. i would be upset inside too. i cried when alex's har was cut shorter . but not where he could see ya know?

I would wait to see how bad it is before reacting..... it may be nothing, it may be a HUGE change

Honestly don't go to hard on her... I think every kid does this once in their life... I did...and I know MANY kids who did... it sucks but it will grow back and I know I was equally upset about my hair and how it looked when I did it!

Dont be too harsh-- she obviously knows how mad you are going to be so I would take it easy on her--it will grow back and everything will be alright.

 I actually remember cutting my hair. Right off the top front. lol.

My sister cut one of her pony tails right off. lol

Be sure to tell her how pretty she looks, because she is prob self conscious about it.

Just try to remember that she is young and just made a mistake! She probally feels so bad and is being so hard on herself right now that if you started making her feel bad, it would be too much!!! Just talk to her and tell her from now on that if her hair ties get stuck, dont cut them herself but go to an adult to fix it! Things like this happen and it is part of growing up!!!
