Has anyone ever cut their child's hair? If so, was it a triumph, or a tragedy?
My mother cut my hair once.
It was a disaster still being 'cleaned up'
Have done it a few times and it looked ok. But for cutting my own hair now there's a tragic story lol.
Well I never cut my children's hair however, my oldest now 13 was about 5 years old when she decided that she and her younger sister(3 at the time) needed serious hair cuts. Well to my dismay I walked in way to late...she snipped her own hair within a half inch of her scalp and her sisters hair was cut to the ear line with no bangs...I was devastated! And the questions and giggles i got when out in public were embarrassing! Makes me laugh today but back then I wanted to cry
I've cut my son's hair since the first time he ever needed a haircut, and cut my ex-husband's hair for five years. I also always do trims on my own hair (it's very long and I like to keep it that way, so they're just tiny trims to get rid of split ends) and trim my husband's hair when it's needed. It took a little bit of practice at first, but never any really big messes. Then again...I did cut a lot of dogs' hair before I started cutting people hair too, and they wiggle around a lot more and have a lot more changes in grain and texture, so that may have helped.
A bit of both. My little boy will not let anyone near his hair and will not keep still. Saying that he kept still for me (with the promise of a ginger biscuit) and the hair cut looked like I had gone around a basin with scissors. Needless to say the day after I took several biscuits with me to the hair dressers.

Can anyone tell me what art therapy would say about a child's drawing that is all tiny circles...spiraling outward, each row a different color and each circle the same size? Sort of like mosaic tile?
