My daughter has 3 sons - no daughters, ages 11,7 & 5 yrs. They all have very long hair which makes them look like girls particularly, the eldest son who looks very much like her. My husband and I have approached the subjet of keeping the children's hair short, but it always end up with an argument. Fearful that the children particularly, the eldest who starts school in September could be subject of bullying as he resembles a girl. Not sure if my daughter is longing for a daughter why she is reluctant to have their hair cut.Have even tried advising that they could harber lice, but she just does not seem to be listenning. What would you suggest?
Thanks for your advice. Would also like to add that her eldest child is a very bright child accademically and is due to start high school in September 2013. ADHD is suspected ( short concentration span - flick from one thing to the other and finds it very difficult to sit/concentrate on any tasks for long. Apprenly his father displays similar traits, but was never assessed at sch which he regrets. He believed this has happen his progress at sch and work. My daughter is in the process of asking her G.P to refer him to ed psychologist. Feels he may be a child with special educational needs in view of what she suspects. Plus the fact he is a bright child. Scored 4-5 in his recent SATS test. Starts high sch in September.
What would you advise?
