Would you let your 12-year-old get bright blue highlights?
I did! And I’m proud of Sarah. She’s her own person and she knew exactly what she wanted.
I’m no stranger to bright hair myself, as anyone who knows me well can attest, but even if I wasn’t, I wouldn’t hesitate to say yes to this. It’s hair. It grows out. And it’s such a personal and fun way of expressing your personality!
I know it’s not for everyone, though. I have friends whose kids aren’t allowed to dye their hair at all, or who have to stick to “natural” colors. And that’s OK too. Sometimes, that’s a simple matter of cost, or of school rules (something we, as homeschoolers, get to avoid worrying about!)
(And while you’re there, check out the ways I’ve been reminded to be grateful for what we have – even in the face of family mini-emergencies!)
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
