Long Hair Breeds Bad Behavior

I've been told that long hair breeds bad behavior. So, I'm posting this for all the moms with long-haired boys that are misbehaving. If only you had known that a simple haircut would have solved your problems. No longer do you need to teach your boy to be a good person. Simply chop off those nasty locks of hair and watch the magic! Don't take any chances, cut your girl's hair too. People will think your kids are respectable and so they will be. Right?

In the article Boys hair: long or short by Christina Sbarro, her husband argues, "...boys with long hair grow up to be irresponsible, carefree, wanderers, who don't know how to hold down a regular job. Said long haired boys might join a low-life garage band, or be influenced by the wrong crowd, and in general, would be disadvantaged in the corporate world of "grown up" America." Do you think she agreed? Nope.

If it were completely my decision, I would let my young boy have whatever hairstyle he wanted. If he started to misbehave, I would grab a big can of "no more video games" before grabbing the clippers.

As an adult he may need to worry about how others perceive him, but as a child I need to worry about how he perceives himself.

To clip or not to clip? What's your opinion?

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I have to say I am one that prefers the male gender to have short, clean cut hair. I have nothing against men who have long hair if its cared for.

    As for the behavior, I am with you, I think its more about what they are exposed to then how they look.

    My son is a good example, he loves his video games but the minute I catch an attitude from him, he is on house arrest with nothing but his bedrooms walls to keep him entertained. Straigtens him right up.

  2. My son is 12 and goes to catholic school so he has to keep his hair short by the rule. Personally he keeps it short for baseball that he plays year round. We own shears and just shave it off every month. Ok with that said you would think he is an angel, right? Nope! Total devil! The haircut doesnt have a thing to do with it. Being 12 is the real reason. lol

  3. My baby boy is 6 and he looks adorable with long hair! He's cute with short, but irresistible when it's long. He's the sweetest little boy ever! Not a mean bone in his body and while he can be a little turkey at times I don't think anyone could ever say he was a meanie!
