I don't know if this topic has been suggested yet, there are so many good ideas ~

But what about instead of families that dread together, what about dreaded parents or a single parent of a young child and the stigma they face? I am a single dreadheaded mom (3 years now) of a 7-year old and I have always been shunned by other parents, and even purposely not invited to certain school activities. I am sure there are many misconceptions surrounding my parenting abilities due to the untrue stigmas (Lazy; pothead; dirty; etc.)

For me it was about a spiritual awakening, of wanting to be myself without caring what others thought of me. I have redefined beauty in myself and I see beauty differently in all cultures now - everyone is beautiful, whether they conform to societal standards or not (without conformity, what is nonconformity?)

I want to show the world the I am just as intelligent, caring and clean as any other parent out there, and that my streak of free spirit and self-acceptance is a good thing. My daughter already knows :)

Wow, I agree, that is terrible. It just shows how dangerous nonconformity can be in the eyes of those who don't understand :(

I'm not sure if my particular story is what you would be looking for. I'm a 30 year old, white, Christian woman. I've had natural dreadlocks for 2 years now, and my 4 year old daughter has 1 dread that has formed in her very short curly hair. She plans on having her hair turn into dreads so she can "look like Mommy". I hold two Associate Degrees, and studied to be a Sign Language interpreter, but didn't finish my certification due to finances and familial obligations. I am currently a stay-at-home mom that makes eco-friendly jewelry (Eco-Chic Jewelry), and I sell at our local farmer's market alongside my 4 year old who decided to start her own business (Shula's Art Gallery) and sells her art. Dreadlocks for me was an anti-style choice - it mirrored the natural lifestyle we were already living, and it represented the utmost natural hair without the assumptions of societal pressures. It was a deep spiritual journey that made me come to realize my beauty and worth were deeper than my physical appearance, and even encouraged me to stop wearing make-up. At the time I began my dreadlock journey, I knew no one who had dreads. So, it was a very deep and personal choice without outside influence. People often assume that because of my dreads, I smoke weed; and though I have nothing against it when used medicinally, I personally do not smoke. I don't like labels (though, I used a few for the sake of describing myself), and am often called a hippie, which means something different to every person that uses that label. I live pretty humbly and simply, and would eventually like to travel as a lifestyle with my family. My husband is hispanic, a veteran from the Marine Corps, an ex-cop, and we both worked in ministry together for awhile. We believe in eating a whole foods/ plant based diet, and working on our love and compassion towards all living beings - showing our love for God through our acceptance of others.

I don't know if this has been said already, but what about doing something on kids and spouses of active duty soldiers who have locks. Talk about feeling out of place.
