Would you let your daughter get a boyish haircut?
My eldest daughter miss (?) O. has been like a tomboy for a while now, requesting me to cut her hair short, to buy her boys’ clothes and toys. She would never accept anything that comes in pink or purple color.
I must say that she was a real girlish toddler thanks to me putting pink and purple clothes on her with butterfly, cute animal and princess prints on. I even made piggy tales for her!
I don’t know whether she hated them already then (it looks like that) but as soon as she became like 3 years old she started to speak her mind on outfits. Black it should be with tough Batman and Superman prints! Oh my!
Anyways I let her choose all her clothes, I let her get short haircuts as seen in magazines. Luckily we have a cool hairdresser who follows her wishes and does not judge us. This is how she usually looks:
Actually I don’t mind her looking like this, I let her wear the clothes she feels comfortable wearing.
Do you think that I am encouraging her? If yes, is this too bad? Do you have kids that do not follow the “pattern”?
