My son Matthew has beautiful curly wavy hair. When it is cut, it looks so good and makes him look so handsome. However, to get him to get a haircut is torture for both of us. The constant back and forth and mother-son bickering is awful.
I just don’t understand why there is a struggle every time I ask him to get a haircut. I even compromised and said he could just get his hair “trimmed.” I was desperate. He still refused.
Recently, I texted him about getting a haircut and as you can see I didn’t win. I guess I should be grateful that at least he will get his haircut before school starts
Sometimes I wonder if my son’s resistance is because how he looks and how he dresses represents his identity and that is the one thing he would like to control or have a say in. Look, I get it, for teens, how you look should be up to you and your appearance is your choice, but I also think you mom or dad should have a little say in it, right?
I am curious to find out if any other parents have had the same struggle. If so, how have you resolved the haircut battle?
