Cut my year 6 boys hair for it all to go wrong. Now he had no hair and feeling so guilty

You have a couple of weeks for it to grow back a little before he's back at school.

😥 let's hope it grows quick . I've torture the poor boy

How short is it? Can it be made better by a hairdresser once back open?

newbeginnings16 Sun 25-Dec-16 20:40:34

No love , really shirt . He seems to be ok with it today

Why would you cut someone's hair if your not trained to do it? Sorry I don't get it far to risky, it's a couple of quid to get a child's hair cut!

Although it will grow back, worse things happen at sea!

Don't hairdressers have training and assessments? It's a bit like teaching, everyone and anyone thinks they can do it.
Yep, that's a pretty crap/arrogant thing to do.

No arrogance about it. His father had promised to take him and let him down . I was busy sorting things and working . He asked me to cut it which I have many times. The clippers jammed causing some shortness on top. I feel guilty enough

Can a hairdresser fix it?

Don't worry, it will grow back soon! It is easy when rushed and busy to do things in haste. You had the best intentions, don't overthink it.

My children's birth mother force fed them, locked them in cupboards, denied them much needed medical treatment and may have been supervising my DD when she obtained a non accidental (in the Drs words) fracture.

You are NOT the worst mother.

Nothing hairdresser would be able to do

Well if it makes you feel better my DS(7) had been pestering for his hair cut all week. I forgot blush and he decided to take matters into his own hands last night. He trimmed his fringe, his sideburns and a random patch at his crown with my fabric scissors.

Why is it arrogant to do something other people are trained to do? I cook dinner several times a week- I'm not a trained chef. Ds has just finished polishing and varnishing his floorboards- he's not a trained decorator.

When ours were little dh always cut their hair: seemed silly to spend lots money on something they didn't really care about. Surely self sufficiency is a good thing if money is tight (and even if it isn't).

Well op was canvassing opinion... confused

DoofusMcXmas1 Sun 25-Dec-16 21:47:46

Blimey op you're worrying over nothing. I scalp my ds on a regular basis as he looks nice (imo) with very short hair. It's come back to bite me on the arse as, at 4 years old, he's decided he wants to grow it and won't let me loose with the clippers. He looks an absolute mess and I'm sure people think I'm just as shit for allowing him out like that grin

MrsMcMoo Sun 25-Dec-16 22:02:14

You really, really aren't a bad mother for cutting your child's hair less than perfectly! Xx

WellKnackered Sun 25-Dec-16 22:02:23

I've done the same when I was arrogantly (wink] ) cutting my sons hair. I forgot to put the guard on the clippers and did a big stripe on the top of his head. He looked like a badger. I had to cut it all super short which looked awful.
It wasn't one of my finest bits of parenting 😂

newbeginnings16 Sun 25-Dec-16 22:11:54

He seems a lot less bothered today, yesterday was tears and I felt so bad

VimFuego101 Sun 25-Dec-16 22:20:18

I'm sure it will grow back or be long enough to get it how he wants it by the time school starts again. Don't panic.
