Scene: an influencer posts photos of her son asking for advice on whether to cut his hair or not. I comment: “Why don't you ask him what he prefers? 🙂". Only later do I realize that in the 690 comments, everyone says cut or keep. This is not to say what is right or wrong, others focused on answering the question, I get it. It is to reflect on the fact that we sometimes forget that children are people. That they have preferences and can express them. That we are not their masters. And that respectful education starts with tiny changes. That’s all. Ps. Alex is wearing a hat because he does need a haircut! 😂
