Quoting Brobee:" I wouldn't. I would just keep brushing it, and make her listen. I dealt with it with Elena. She has SUPER ... [snip!] ... get it brushed. And she eventually got over it. She still fights me sometimes, but eh, she's 4, and she's bratty sometimes. "
Quoting snglemama:" hmm... in that case... maybe google pictures of beautiful women with short hair... and make a big deal ... [snip!] ... to decide she wants it like that? but.. short hair still needs brushing.. less knots.. but looks crazy if not fixed daily."
Quoting Rain (aka Mama):" I like this idea. Find a way to make it something that she wants to do and then cut it. Will she wear a headband? If she complains, you could always dress it up with headbands, clips, or hats."
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" Basically, I'm so tired of the daily struggle and screaming match when it comes to brushing my daughters ... [snip!] ... she screams like I'm killing her. Even the neighbors have commented on it Would you give a 4 year old a "pixie" cut? "
Quoting Tasha & Nika:" I think Cora is adorable and anything would suit her - if you think it's too much of a struggle, and ... [snip!] ... as though I'm trying to cut an ear off or something Nika doesn't want her hair cut though, so .. we'll keep struggling -.-"
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" Cora "let" me brush her hair this morning I took a different tone. I didn't ASK her if I could do ... [snip!] ... that she needed to sit. And she did. She still cried and tried to pull away, but it was different and less fighting and begging"
Quoting Brobee:" YAY! It's the same with Elena. She still pulls her head a bit, and whines about it, but she sits and has it brushed. "
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" I thinkmbig problem is giving her too much choice Do you want this for dinner Do you want to go xxx ... [snip!] ... want to go xxx place? Can I brush your hair? Are you ready for bed? Too much choices. Time for me to take some of them away"
