Q – My son is 15 years old. He sat down with me and told me that he wanted to cut my hair I was in great shock. I asked him why and he told me he did not want to tell me yet. What do i do? Should I let him cut his hair?
A – If your son really wanted to cut his hair, he would have taken the scissors and cut it, but instead he told you he wanted to cut it. That is his test to you. The fact that he told you means that he wants guidance from you. Be very loving to him. Let him know that you really want to know why he talked to you about it. Talk to him about how beautiful his hair is and help him understand that it just grows back again and again and that it is programmed by God into his genes how much hair should grow on his body. Explain that our natural form is Guru’s gift to us. Be loving and not judgemental. Try to get to the root of the problem, which may not actually be about hair at all.
