Any parents with dreads here?
thank you so much guys, It's so nice to hear that from you all <3
I originally cut my dreads off because my parents had been going nuts at me for my dreads since I had my son. i cut them off when he was one year old, because my mother had been going on about how he'll suffer because of it, and beembarrassedand teased because of it, he will have to see the dirty looks i get and i will look like a bad mother or a hippie who doesn't let their child eat anything but grass etc..
I just re attached them because i feel wrong without them, i somehow have a white girl afro made of big kinky ringlets so nothing other than chemical treatments makes my hair sit nicely (except dreads of course!)..
I was just wondering, do you ever face social issues because you're a parent with locs? has there ever been an issue with you child being teased or embarassed by other kids over it? what do you do? I would love to hear from other dreaded parents and hopefully have my mind put at ease a bit! personally of course i think dreads are beautiful and a symbol of patience in a person but not a lot of others see that >__<
