My daughter wants “unicorn hair”

Kids are full of surprises. They want to dress up like their favorite movie characters or to have an unusual hairdo expressing their own unique style. We’ve all been there after all!

When Mary Thomaston’s 6-year-old daughter asked her mom to dye her hair in the “unicorn” color, the woman thought there was nothing wrong here. Can you imagine Mary’s surprise when multiple social media users ‘attacked’ her as if she did something criminal?

Mary said that her daughter Lyra was asking for “unicorn hair” for a while. Considering all the pros and cons, the mom agreed to dye Lyra’s hair in blue, purple, and yellow colors.

Completely inappropriate?!

One social media user accused the mother of mistaking her child with “a little doll.” Other people commented they would “never do such a thing” to their own kids.

However, there were those who supported Mary and her daughter in their desire to be not like the rest of us.

Ms. Thomaston said in an interview with Huffington Post:

Dear Haters, I have this weird goal of raising self-confident, sel- assured children, who know and feel the freedom of self-expression. So when my child asks for blue hair, I tell her how much I like her choice and how beautiful she is.

What’s your vision of the matter? Should parents support their kids’ desire to express their individuality or maybe such ‘creativity’ is a little too much? We look forward to hearing your opinions in the comments.
