I may have just gone too far
After months and years of nagging dd to brush her hair, screams and tears if I try to do it for her, moneyg spent on tangle teasers, lost hair clips, food in her hair, sore places round her mouth where she chews on her hair... tonight we had the weekly battle of me try g to comb the tangles out while her shrieks woke the dead. I went and got the kitchen scissors and chopped it off into a just below the ears bob. She is now sobbing g and sobbing. It needs doing but I wish I hadn't done it in a fit of temper.
