: : Hey guys :)
: : So I've been growing for about 8 months now, and as such my hair is the longest its been in my life. I'm still 17, and I live with my parents. My mom has been very supportive, telling me that I get to choose what to do with my hair. My dad on the other hand hates it. He constantly tells me to cut my hair and says it looks ugly. I'm not sure how to deal with him. It's not like he can force me to cut it, but at the same time it's kind of annoying and hurtful to hear these things coming from him :( I'm going to college in a year anyways, but till then how can I handle this situation?
: : Thanks,
: : Avi :)
: I'm sorry you're having to deal with that.
: I've known too many guys over the years who have dealt with this and yes, he can force you to cut it. I've known guys whose parents actually did cut their hair for them or dragged them down to the barber shop or even threw them out of the house.
: My suggestion is to accept what dad wants in the mean time.
: Wait until a year later when you're at college and can then be free to grow your hair.
I would be respectful but I would keep growing my hair. Most parents give up eventually.
