I get asked a lot, how my parents reacted for me having dreads. I guess it's because I'm Filipino so it's the stereotypical misconception, that I have strict parents. I'm 16 and I have, not the neatest locks (which I love) - my parents really don't mind it. They actually support me and give me a lot of artistic freedom.
I get more hate from other parents, or adults and they tend to make rude comments on my hair or how I look.. I understand, they were probably raised differently... but how can I respectfully brush them off or show them my point of view ? Have you ever gone through a similar situation - what did you say ? How did your parents react to you getting dreads, did you have to convince them or we're they totally for it ? :D I'd love a good story (:
