difficult child is real into expressing himself right now. As i'm sure most "pre-teens" are. Last summer he wanted his hair highlighted so we let him. It looked really cool. Then during the winter he wanted it black so we compromised with mid-dark brown. Like his brother and step-dad. Well, we went to get a hair cut the other day and when talking to the stylist he got it in his head that he wants fire hair. That is when the roots start out really bleached blonde and the tips end up fire red. with a progression of orange and red throughout. My philosophy has always been it is only hair and it will grow back or can all be cut off. We already let him go for the hair in the eyes skater cut. Now he wants "FIRE". I can just see the youth pastor at church now. Although we go to a very liberal church. Band, tattoo's, every one is unique. But still I wonder is it really that big of deal. So, What would you guys do? If he gets to it has to be after school is out.
