My children cut their own hair, again!
March 2, 2016 2:58am CST
I guess it's because we cut our own hair at home, so the children just like to imitate us. I remember my son used to cut his little sister's hair when she was less than 2 years old, that was more than a year ago. They were really having fun. I told them not to do that again. Yesterday, my little girl started to cut her own hair, then the brother helped her to cut more. My son also cut his own hair. When I have found these out, they have already cut until the hair is very short. Glad that they didn't hurt themselves. I like my little girl to keep her hair short, but now it's even much shorter. She really looks like a little boy now, though I think she's still very cute. Though I don't really mind their haircut is not neat and pretty, I have again told them not to cut their hair by themselves, and I really have to keep the scissors for haircut away. Sometimes when I learned to do something, they would always love to learn as well. It's good for them to learn, but they are really too young to cut their own hair.

My eldest did the same time. Last fall she decided to cut her own hair. About a year or so before that she decided to her her own hair as well as her sister's, who was about a year and a half. Thankfully no one was hurt in either cases.

Wait you have a girl? I dont know why I thought you had two boys lolz The hair cutting is so much fun for kids. It does look okay now huh? I would love to teach them. If I can scan a photo one day, I will show my nephew when he was a child and I was teaching him to cut hair lolz

Many people thought I have two boys. So when they heard my 3rd baby is a boy, they was a bit disappointed for me, though gender doesn't really matter to me. My little girl always has short hair, because her hair is really little even I didn't cut her hair much. I showed my son how to cut the hair after he cut his little sister's hair. I think the way I cut is safer than his, and that's how I cut their hair as well. I always think it's good to teach the kids, then they will learn how to handle things well. It's good if you can show me that photo. My husband used the hair clipper to "cut" my children's hair, so now the hair looks more even now, though shorter.

@rina110383 Yes, I think cutting our own hair really save money and time. Now, we cut our own hair as well, so we don't need to go out to the saloon and wait for the hair to be cut. We also have so much fun cutting our hair at home.

Yes, I have kept the sharp scissors away. I have already let them use the normal scissors to cut papers or other things freely. They used kids' scissors to cut hair before too. Now, their hair are too short, so they won't be able to cut the hair anymore.

I remember cutting my own hair when I was younger. Let me tell you this - most of the time it doesn't even come with a reason, kids just feel the need to do it. In my case, I was just lying on the couch, found a pair of scissors and just started cutting my hair. I didn't even think of myself as a hairdresser or something. I just had to cut my hair!

Yes, I always read and can tell that children just live in the moment, they do what they have in their mind. My little girl kept telling me her hair was too long, and she wanted to cut it short. I already helped her to cut until quite short, but I guess she was not satisfied, she wanted it to be as short as her brother's.

I guess this is really a favorite activity for many kids. The first time my son cut his little sister's hair when she was more than 1 year old, and my little girl sat down properly and let the brother cut the hair. That time, they were still too young, so I kept the scissors away when they have done with using them with cutting papers.

Yes, that's why I was not mad at them, and I don't really care about how their hair really looks like, as long as they are comfortable. As we are staying in tropical country, I think it's fine for my little girl to keep her hair short, so she won't feel so hot.
