A frustrated father cuts off the long hair of his 7-year-old daughter who refuses to brush it: “Was I wrong?”


There is no doubt that those used to having long hair are very hostile to having their hair cut, especially when the hairdresser cuts it too short. Then there are people who don’t really mind, since their hair grows back quickly, and prefer short haircuts. Also, there are girls with long hair who want to look like princesses, but don’t want to hear the word “hairdresser.”. According to a Reddit user, his 7-year-old daughter never brushes her hair, despite having long hair well past her shoulders. Every morning, the two argued because the little girl wouldn’t brush her long hair properly. After repeated warnings, the dad took drastic measures.

Can you be held responsible for your own grooming and hygiene at the tender age of just seven years old? The father who is the subject of this story explained this repeatedly to his daughter – she had to brush her long hair and groom herself. You should brush your long hair daily to prevent it from becoming knotted and tangled, as well as wash it frequently if your hair is long. A dad only wanted his daughter to get into the habit of brushing her hair and avoid arguments about it every morning. If the girl didn’t take some responsibility for this, her father threatened to have her hair cut: he had warned her several times and assured her that he was serious. Even though her parents were separated, even the little girl’s mother agreed with her husband’s warnings: if she didn’t take responsibility for her hair, she would be “punished” by having her hair cut.

Her father had long hair and had shown her several times how to brush and keep it tidy, but every morning it was the same: constant crying and fighting.

“This morning, after yet another argument, I cut her hair an inch below her shoulders. She was devastated. She cried for over an hour while I took her to my parents’ house to leave her while I went to work. My mother told me that I will emotionally damage my daughter if I don’t take parenting lessons.”

He has questioned his actions and asked his Reddit followers whether he had gone too far. Was it too young for his daughter to learn such a hard lesson? Should he have given her more warnings before cutting her hair?

 Several followers of his argued that the child needed to “learn her lesson”. What would you have done?
