Help Dreads and School!!!
A few days ago my three year old told me he wanted his hair like mine. Hearing this made my heart soar. Just thinking about being able to share something so special and natural with my son would be amazing. Later on in the day I shared what my son had told me with my husband, who simply stated that the schools more than likely wouldn't allow him to attend school. With the schools in the U.S. pressing down on how the students hair is to be groomed, cut and styled, down to the color. The realizition hit and makes me sad to think that he may have to wait until he is 18 and completely out of school to even think about dreading. We are not particularily religous with our love for locks, and don't want to submit false pretenses for those that dread for that reason. But are there any ways that he could attend school dreaded?
