My 3 year old step daughter literally cut off all the hair at her bio-moms yesterday...I mean there is no hair on the left side of her head, YOU CAN SEE HER SCALP!!!! What do I do??? We have custody of her all of the time except every other weekend...Im not sure how her mother could have let her do this but tha'ts not my main is going to take YEARS to grow back her shoulder length hair and she starts school in August!!!! We are going to Disney world in April and her new hair cut will be in every picture...Im not concerned about the image but what other kids her age will say to her and she is already so sensitive...what do I do, can I buy a wig??? Im at a loss!

lol oh my goodness i have been there with both my daughters. that is why i am laughing. my second child Emily must think she is going to be a hair dresser becaseu no matter wherei hide the scissors she finds a paair and hacks at her hair. she did stop she is 4 going to be 5. its a phase. not a fun one but a phase. you will live i promise. no matter how frustrating it is. believe me you will look back and laugh like i have. and like my mom n laws said its hair it will grow back. lol im so sorry. i would suggest rounding up all scissors and find a good place although it wont keep them from finding others that you miss like your other kids school scissors. Audrey was 4 adn she did it 1 month before school. with her brothers school scissors. she is 8 adn doesnt do it.

omg i can imagine how you younger daughter did it 3 times and we have pics. she is 14 now and we all laugh about it now.... theres not much you can do i would not recomend a wig this would prob cause more will grow and it wont take forever honestly buy her some lovely scarfs and hats.....when the hair grows a bit for a short style all over do that untill then she can get away with the hats and scarfs .... relax honestly alot of kids do this April her hair will grow long enough to have a nice short style.........good luck
