It made me realize that there is so much more to a haircut than simply cutting hair.Matt didn’t understand the “why” and in his panic to save himself, he would risk bodily harm. Realizing that my son actually thought I was trying to take a piece of him and throw it away shook me to my core.

He had watched Tom and Christopher shave, and this help to at least give him the courage to try it, for which I am thankful.I should have cut his brother’s hair in front of Matt, and probably his daddy’s hair too.I should have let him feel the scissors and have him cut a piece of hair himself. In order for a simple hair cut to be a simple hair cut I needed to take each step apart and explain the "whys" and show him examples of others having it done.He especially hated the sound of his hair being trimmed around his ears - his hands again flying upward to cover and protect them. I was pretty awful at it in the beginning and must confess there were several times the end result was absolutely ghastly.The only thought that allowed me to keep my sanity and lessen the guilt of the jagged edges and roller-coaster bangs was the knowledge that it would soon grow out again - a double-edged sword as the process of cutting his hair was also rife with guilt and stress.

I should have talked it through step by step and repeatedly for several days prior to the actual cutting. He needed to see that it was OK, that no pain was involved.
