Is there supposed to be a link?

Thanks for the reminder @syz
I don’t know if a video would add to the cuteness, though.

Cute. I say let’s interview the parents about why they think it’s okay to leave the kids unsupervised while they have access to implements such as scissors.

flo's avatar

@filmfann Yep it could have ended up badly.

flo's avatar

@filmfann Probably not because they thought it was okay to leave the kids unsupervised while they have access to implements such as scissors. It is probably an oversight.

Till tomorrow…

Yup…totally cute. Thanks for sharing.

I’m not a parent. I was once a kid though. Our parents didn’t supervise us 24/7, even at the age of five and three. I was guilty of stuff like this, like giving my Barbie a shag hair cut and slicing my hand on Daddy’s fascinating razor blade dispenser A young niece climbed a ladder to the second story when her parents’ backs were turned. A young nephew filled his dad’s gas tank with the yard hose. There are many more family stories. We all survived and landed on our feet.

I wish that we had tape recordings of the parents’ conversations with us after we got called out for these shenanigans. It is just the beginning of life’s wonderful self-lessons.

Totally adorable, @flo. Thanks for sharing.

I had seen this a couple of days ago, and it’s very adorable. There is no video to go along with it, but I don’t think a video would really contribute an

@filmfann All kids get into things they shouldn’t get into sometimes- it happens. For these kids, it just happened to be scissors. This isn’t exactly the first time a kid has had a hair cutting incident, this one has just been recorded for our amusement!

That was GREAT! Every kid does it, though! I bet Mom had a stroke…the hair had been down to the kid’s “tush.” I, personally, think that’s a little thoughtless of parents, but each to their own.

Thanks everyone., Off the charts! on the cuteness meter, isn’t it? Esp. the last part how often in a lifetime this kind of thing happens:) OMG!

@Pied_PfefferA young nephew filled his dad’s gas tank with the yard hose” What they wouldn’t think of!

On a serious note though, one kid I heard about used a chair to unlock the door at night, got out and was found downtown. I don’t know how far the downtown was but it sounded far enough.

My children suffered sever anguish and pain if they ever went outside without asking/letting me know, even just out to the fenced in back yard.

flo's avatar

@Dutchess_III what do you mean a little thoughtess of the parents? Are you referring to the privacy of the children?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Thoughtless of a parent to put her desire for her child’s hair to be amazingly long above the comfort and preference of the child.

Fly's avatar

@Dutchess_III If the child hadn’t expressed discomfort prior to this incident, which it sounds like she hadn’t, I completely disagree. The length that the children described does not sound extraordinarily long, and many young girls have long hair. It sounds like the mother was more shocked at the new hairdo than the fact that her hair wasn’t long anymore. I loved (and still love) my extremely long hair, and I never had any major issues. Minus that hair in the toilet thing…that really did suck.

@Dutchess_III The mother may not have known that her 3 year-old didn’t like her long hair. Children that age often just live with what their parents do or offer and not think about speaking up about their own opinion. A family story is about when I turned six. I was given a slice of fruit cake after the birthday dinner (Note: it’s Dec. 26th) and supposedly said, “No thank you.” When asked why, I said, “I don’t like it.” The response was, “But you always have fruit cake for your birthday!” My response: “I didn’t know I had a choice.”

Besides, how long can a three year-old’s hair get, even if never cut? The sister claims that it is curly, and there is also mention of it being in braids. Both shorten the length of long hair.

@Fly Any hair that is down to the kid’s “tush” is uncomfortable and cumbersome. It takes a LOT of maintenance that pre-schoolers don’t really have time for because they really have other things to worry about. Think about it. The kids didn’t come up with “When she goes to the potty and the hair falls in the toilet and it’s gross!” out of nowhere.

@Pied_Pfeffer Well, according to the audio, it was down to her “tush.” Of course, kids make stuff up….

Fly's avatar

@Dutchess_III I had hair past my “tush” as a young child, so I can personally attest to the fact that it was neither uncomfortable nor cumbersome. In fact, my current hair goes down to my butt as well. It took no maintenance other than brushing and it is easily put up if ever in the way. And if you actually read my full response, you would notice that I did mention that the hair in the toilet thing does happen and is certainly not pleasant (though it never actually goes into the water or anything), but most children would figure out that brushing their hair to the side quickly remedies that problem.

And, as @Pied_Pfeffer and I both said, if the child did not say that the hair bothered her, how could the parents possibly know?

Dutchess_III's avatar

A lot of parents disregard their kid’s protests.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Come on @Dutchess_III That may be true in some cases, but this particular one sounds like a three year-old saying yes to her older sibling’s idea. There is no mention in the audio or article that the parents, specifically the mother, objected to the daughter having short hair. It seems like an assumption in this case.

The mom was shocked to see her ‘baby’ with a butcher job of a hair cut. She was probably more mortified that one of her young daughters had access to the scissors that were stored up high, but that’s an assumption on my part. Let’s give the parents a break.

Fly's avatar

@Dutchess_III And what does that have to do with this audio clip? It certainly doesn’t sound like that was the case in this incident. In fact, it was the older sister’s idea to cut the hair, no hers. Nothing suggests that the parents were neglectful. Is it possible? Sure, but this amusing father-daughter interview gives no reason to suspect it or to be so judgmental.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I didn’t say they were neglectful, @Fly.

flo's avatar

The only thing is the reaction of the mother, and I hope they are not Toddlers and Tiarra tolerant parents. Putting that much imortance on the exterior stuff is worse than thoughtless.

Dutchess_III's avatar

@flo. Those were my thoughts. I’ve had long hair in the past. It gets heavy and cumbersome, and uncomfortable when you sleep and when it gets hot, and it has to be brushed and untangled all the time. Unless you braid it. It which case it’s yanking on your head and it hurts.

flo's avatar

@Dutchess_III I can’t speak on the practical side of it from experience but it sounds right to me. I would rather them be free from having to fiddlle with their hair.

The part I was referring to is what if the child has to go through chemotherapy, loses her hair for example? Any kind of disfigurement for that matter from fire, car accident, etc., would make life that much more difficult, I think if they are already brainwashed into believing that their looks are it.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I quite agree @flo!
