But each time after that he throws the worst little devil fit he hits screams kicks wont sit down on my lap or in the booster seat. I've tried blowing bubbles, giving him balloons, giving him candy and snacks. He just wont do it I had to walk out of the hair dressers today because nothing would make him sit and calm down. So my husband suggested maybe trying to do it ourselves in the tub. well my little devil boy is to smart for that! He wont let me near his hair then even

when he is playing in the h20! So then my husband suggested maybe using clippers with the biggest gard. the second my son saw them he freaked out he's scared of those too.

I had a child that did all the things yours does. I had to learn how to cut hair while he was sleeping. Yeah, you won't get the greatest cut, but until they get over the fear, there really isn't any point in prolonging the agony BOTH of you are going through by putting him in situations where he is truly scared.

Toddlers see everything as an extension of themselves- so while we adults know that cutting hair doesn't hurt, a toddler doesn't. It is a part of their body, and all they know is that someone is trying to severe it from their head. They are afraid that it will hurt or that part of them will be missing. So, it is easy then to understand how a toddler can look at a person with fear who is intending on separating them from a part of themselves. Even if it won't hurt.

Enjoy your raggedy boy for a little while, and know that he will soon grow out of this fearful stage. )
