Whats it like being a dready parent?
Dreads in the Family
funny you should say that, i work with a group of elderly people and tbh i've not had one negative comment, or one bit of small mindedness about my hair at all, in fact quite the opposite, i find them curious (obviously they all thought you didnt wash them!) and inquisitive about my hair.. i find myself educating them, which is hilarious! they find them fascinating and are really nice about them!
as far as dready parents, hmm where to start, i've found that some of the most ignorant and small minded people are those of my own age and younger! my son had dreads from the age of about 10 (all gone now sadly) and he got loads of hassle and teasing and his headmaster and teachers were all absolutely horrible about it! they just wanna churn out robots that all look and think the same. i wish i'd have known then that i couldve home schooled them! i always thought i should be encouraging their uniqueness, but thats not how it was at all!!
