I see your shifting gaze, that disgusted glance. I know you’re questioning my parenting from across the elementary school assembly.
Let me tell you a little story about the kindergarten student with bright purple hair, my little Raven Marie…
A month before school started she decided to play hair stylist with the craft scissors, and to save what was left I had to opt for a pixie cut. She was absolutely devastated. It was about three hours before she stopped her harsh sobbing and hiccups.
She has thought that the length of a girls hair was what made her “girly”. I know I’ve personally had many hairstyles around her before, including a purple mohawk, which many people criticized as not being “girly” enough. Media, other children, other parents, and society made it worse. She would randomly burst in tears while out in public for the first week of her new style, screaming that she looked like a boy. That everyone would think she’s a boy.
At one point she took off her bow in her hair, threw it at a cashier and screamed, “I DON’T NEED THIS BOW TO TELL YOU THAT I’M NOT A BOY, BECAUSE I’M NOT”
Proudly stomping away in her blue jean overalls, head held high.
Once we edged closer to the first day of school she kept asking questions like, “Do you think the other kids will like me? Do you think they’ll be my friend? Will they think I’m a boy? Will they pick on me because I have boy hair?”
So I went to the grocery store, bought some dye, and spent the whole night transforming my bright blonde little girl into a plum punk rock fairy. I then assured her that if any of the kids didn’t like her, they were just jealous.
As for you, mothers and teachers with the wandering eyes filled with disgust and judgement, I’m in the business of raising a free spirit.
Here’s to you, Raven Marie. I love you.
You might think you are so radical and oh such a great parent for teaching your kid to be a nonconformist but all you are doing is limiting your child’s potential and brainwashing it.
Take it from an educator : kids need conformity, they need to fit in, they need to belong. Why do you think some get bullied and others don’t? At a young age our minds work on a semi primitive level. The group keeps us safe, are friends are those who are like us, we are different because our group is different. Those that stand out get bullied, get cast aside. You are setting up your kid to be judged and ridiculed.
Furthermore you teach her liberalism, feminism and other political non sense that matters to you but has no business polluting a child’s mind. Kids MUST discover things themselves, you as a parent have the OBLIGATION to take care of your kid and that includes giving them COMPLETE FREEDOM OF CHOICE. If your girl wants to fit in, to have long locks and be a house wife one day then you let her do that.
You DO NOT preach feminism to a kindergarten kid. You DO NOT push your agenda on an impressionable mind. You DO NOT set up your kid to be the school’s freak.
In other words, you are a bully to your own child. You are unfit to have a kid simply because you fail to understand basic human behavior. You know close to nothing about a child’s education and frankly the one that needs to go back to kindergarten is you.
they said it so well up there… kids will grow up and have their own time to have these phases and it will be by their own choice (like it or not of course lol) I’ve seen it first hand many times what happens when a child doesn’t fit in… like once there was this little boy who was always dressed in really weird hipster clothes (like a little suit and even a red bow) and it was hell for him. and of course it was my fault I didnt stop all the bullying but it’s not all my fault… it has to start from home. and I know its unfair but the world,the society is not fair. there is something what majority calls normal depending on country and culture and you need to just take it for the sake of your child… like said there will be day and time they can do whatever they want.
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
There’s absolutely nothing fucking wrong with letting your child be who they want to be.
As an educator, maybe you should educate fucking kids on how not to be fucking bullies and accept differences, how’s that sound, asshole?
Maybe instead of being an ass-crater you can grow up and realize that people are different, and you don’t need to conform just because its ~what kids need~.
You know what else kids need? Room to discover themselves and learn to fucking accept themselves. Just because you think you’re right, doesn’t make you right you sniveling cunt flap.
Hair dye is, in the long run, not permanent. Her hair will grow back out in a natural color. It’s not like she’s got tattoos or piercings or anything. Basically, what the mom is doing is not hurting the child in any way. And if little Raven Marie is happy with that hairstyle, who are you to say it’s bad or wrong? What kids need is to be raised by loving parents who do things to help them feel comfortable as whoever they are.
little Raven Marie chopped up her hair, as many of us surely did as children, and her mother went to lengths to “save” what was left, implying that her daughter was unhappy with what she herself had done, and with the end result of it. her mother obviously never would have opted for the pixie cut if her daughter liked how she’d chopped up her own hair, because she’s obviously very accepting of what her daughter wants!
it’s important for Raven to learn that actions - like cutting your own hair - have consequences, but with a little creativity, you can turn a bad situation into a good one.
my mother raised me like this, letting me choose what to do and helping me when i needed it, and without that I never would have discovered who I really am and become who I am today.
skankmcmeow, you are a fantastic woman, and your daughter is gorgeous. I wish the best for both of you.
I hope that “educator” isn’t actually educating people. Not because of the content (I stopped reading that about halfway through) but because of the grammatical and spelling errors. Are is not the same as our. They don’t even SOUND the same. Go home.
this gets pretty loud be careful
I had never even considered the range of emotions these two go through in this part
