Texas Parents Battle For The Constitutional Right To Have A Hippie Child

It's kinda hard to argue with dad on this one. How is he supposed to cut his kid's hair against the kid's will?

First, kid does have some nice-looking hair.

Second, I'll bet dad is a Rhoades Scholar from high school.

Third, mom is a crack whore.

Fourth, parents should both be beaten for ignorance...the kid is what 6-9 years old? Where do you think he gets his opinion?

12/21/2012...HURRY UP and C'MON MAN!

What REALLY impresses me is his father's piercings! Class Act!

Yeah......how is dad supposed to get him to bed by 9... or put his toys up..... or make his bed.... or don't hit other kids...if the kid doesn't want to?

I bet if the kid started stealing dad's beer money, he'd find a way to will that kid to stop.

My God!! The school district needs a policy for their own employee's.
The district spokepersons hair was worse than the kids.

Hey, genius -
it's not necessary to hold the kid down by force. He's supposed to do what you tell him to do...he's four! But then, it's obvious who runs that house, judging by the kid's huge attitude

I gotta agree with a previous commenter - c'mon 2012!

It's a free country dude... we should have the right to wear our hair any way we want, beat the next door neighbor kid, steal anything we want, race a car down central expressway as fast as we want or kill anyone we want....come on.

Its a free country!!

Grew up in MISD. They are very conservative, but consistent. Rules are rules you moron parentals. You enrolled your kid which means you agreed to the rules. They should probably home school him anyway so there would be 3 in the class.

Now, someone find that kid and shave his head so this mess goes away (with permission, of course).

I think it's absolutely ridiculous to say his hair is a distraction. The other students could probably care less about it. I don't think his hair was too long at all....I've seen worse

How is he supposed to cut his kid's hair against the kid's will? It's called duct tape.

I would challenge any adult to sub in a middle school or high school for one day.

Much ado about nothing - I told my kids they could wear their hair anyway they wanted to (and they came up with some wild cuts) BUT I RESERVED THE RIGHT TO TEASE THEM ABOUT IT AS MUCH AS I WANTED. They usually grew bored with any weird style after a couple of weeks.

2:59, their own employee's what? Which employee are you talking about?

2:59, you use apostrophes when not necessary, and don't use them when it's called for....my gosh.

Do any girls have hair as long? Is this an "equal opportunity for everyone except a white male" kind of thing?

Gorilla said...

Don't those parents know that it is impossible to learn with long hair?

I had a mullet in high school and I haven't turned out worth a sh*t.

If he came in a buzz cut I bet that would be fine. But if a girl came with a buzz cut, we'd have the same issue in reverse and the school would be against hair that was too short. Maybe there is a cancer patient among the students who has lost his or her hair...let that kid decide how long someone's hair can be....

Ha...3:47 you are right...

subbing is the worst job in the history of earth....

problem is that dads like that are what you have to pick from

Yeah I feel for the teachers...these parents are morons...the kid will grow up to be insufferable and someone will kick his ass. And not a moment too soon.

Anon @2:28: Umm, what happens on 12/21/12? I think the "magic date" you were looking for is 01/20/13.
And I doubt that a new White House administration will solve what is clearly a local school district issue.
Way to pay attention in civics class.

4:12.....if you are having to pick a winner from any of my students' dads you don't have a chance.

Oh sure they make this issue, but it's okay for members of the high school football team to shave their private areas in the shower. You don't want to see the video.

Growing up in the 60's we went through this. It went to the courts and the schools won.

Come on people have we really come to this that parents are so ignorant to rules. There has to be rules so just follow them. I believe the poor kid wants to go back to school and be with his friends but he is being held back by 2 stubborn people who just want to rebell GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

Hey Tom,

Google "Mayan Calendar". Now who's the moron?

I have the solution....

Dad says....in Leave it to beaver dad voice...

"Son.... the school says you can't have your hair that long, so we're going to the barber shop to get a hair cut. Case closed"

The kid is back in school the next day and kid is happy.

The bottom line here is, the school district's rule is counter-productive. By nitpicking, they are creating more of a distraction than the rule aims to prevent.

Good for that kid. I like his ideals, kind of like the kid who wouldn't stand up to say the pledge of allegiance because he felt like homosexuals weren't free. It’s nice to see children exercising their natural rights as American citizens.

I don't know how you can do anything against a kid's will. If a kid wants to eat his own poop at the age of 2, let him. If a kid wants to put a kitten in the washing machine, let her. If a kid wants to turn on the gas stove knobs, no problem. If a kid wants to drive the car at age 7, you just need to let her do that. It's her will, after all. Yup, kids should never be forced to do or not do anything at all.
