The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling…
And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind it.
They most certainly are entitled to that opinion, just not the haircut. And I think that's an important lesson to learn. Sometimes, consessions have to be made and rules have to be followed, even if they don't necessarily make sense. Lots of employers ban tattoos, long hair on men, facial hair, etc.And, if a child likes their hair long or feels that's how they look best, then they should be entitled to that opinion. It is just a haircut.
Well, sure, but that's not really the point. Apparently, this has been part of the dress code since the 70s and is well known. It seems to me that the mom is forcing them to pay more attention to it than they might otherwise.Plus, quite frankly, I'm quite sure that there is something more important in the school that they could be focusing their attention on!

http://www.wsbtv.com/news/22277177/detail.html-- A 4-year-old Texas boy disciplined for having long hair has returned to his class with a brand new 'do.
Pre-kindergartner Taylor Pugh rejoined his classmates at his suburban Dallas elementary school on Tuesday.
Elizabeth Taylor says her son's hair is still long, but now she's styled it in a double French braid pinned up at the base of his neck. The school principal approved the style.
The boy typically wears his hair long and had been sequestered from classmates at Floyd Elementary School in Balch Springs since late November.
The long hair violates the school district's dress code. It says boys' hair must be kept out of the eyes and cannot extend below the bottom of earlobes or over the collar of a dress shirt.
I am glad they finally put the boys education before his hair

I think the school is trying to instill in its students the need to follow the rules. I am sorry to say this is a necessary evil in the real world when it comes to dealing with the average student and the typical corporate environment they will probably end up in.
If you have talent and/or are not lazy, it speaks for itself anymore. I have a penis and my hair is half way down my back. I can pick and choose who I work for - not the other way around. If I were in a position where I really needed the gig and I had to cut my hair I would though.
Now that this decision has been made, do you think he will cut his hair (or make a similar change) in the future if he needs to do so? I don't think he will and I fear it will be a problem for his future family or just himself.
Sheevaa: I can understand...I got peed on for the first time and got all excited about it:P
DamagedGoods: mm... my meat smells damned tasty, it's a shame I've got another few hours to wait for it.
newstarshipsmell :Sorry, DG, but the Laerma nuts only grow on trees on the world of Dezoris in the Algol star system so unless you have a spaceship...
Not cool, mom... not cool.double French braid pinned up at the base of his neck
Asinine. I think they all just got tired of quibbling about it. They just traded one "out of norm" do for another. Nice compromise, though.Elizabeth Taylor says her son's hair is still long, but now she's styled it in a double French braid pinned up at the base of his neck. The school principal approved the style.
Side note: My brother has always had long hair. At age 4, one of my daughters asked me "Is Uncle Roc a boy or a girl?"
