It happens to every parent. They look a their child, and realize that it's time for
a haircut. Many times when there aren't any kid-friendly salons or barber shops nearby, the parent will try to take matters
into their own hands. If this notion occurs to you, take a step back, and think twice about it. The reason I say that is because
children ages infant to 5 like to move around during this process:and if your not experienced with the scissors, it could
turn out to be a disaster.
Mind you, if you are desparate,
and need to get this task accomplished fast, make sure that you have someone helping, either another adult or a very reponsible
teenager. Make sure that the person without the scissors holds the child securely, and expect them to get a little upset.
If you can tolerate this by all means do the cut. If your not comfortable with this, take your child to a professional. Chances
are if they're used to working with kids your child won't get upset. Just remember, the first haircut is not only important
from a sentimental point of view, but it also sets the tone for how they will behave in the future.
