  1. The dad is a hypocrite. He says the school is more concerned bout his hair that his education. BUt so is the dad, otherwise he’d respect the rules of the institution and cut the hair. He cares more about his son’s hair than keeping him in school. It’s not about the hair, it’s about following rules, whether you think they are dumb or not, not defying them. Does a 4 year old REALLY care what his hair looks like?? Teach your child to accept and respect authority, not fight it every time it doesn’t fit your agenda. It’s a moral issue, he’s 4. So every place is supposed to bend the rules for everyone everytime someone doesn’t agree with it? what does that teach children??
