A mum has been left feeling ‘frustrated’ after her daughter’s schoolteacher repeatedly redoes her little girl’s hair.
The unnamed mama turned to Reddit to ask if she was overreacting, admitting that her husband didn’t think it was a big deal but that her mother-in-law and auntie agreed with her.
However, on more than one occasion, her daughter had returned from school with her hair in an entirely different style after her teacher decided to redo it.
“The first time she redid her hair I brushed it off and didn’t think much of it, probably took it out herself or something,” she wrote.
“But then she wanted a messy bun like mommy so I did, sent her to school and she came back in braids because ‘teacher said it was messy’.
“I sent her in a braid today, slept in so some hair was out around her face but no big deal and she came home with her hair completely down because ‘let’s get that hair out of your face’.”
Then mum then asked if she was right to be annoyed by the situation, as she did a good job taking care of her daughter’s hair.
She went on: “I’m not really sure how I should feel? Any advice? Do I say anything to the teacher? Am I overthinking?”
The post soon attracted plenty of comments and advice, with many parents thinking the teacher was simply being ‘sweet’ and suggesting that if it didn’t bother her daughter then there was no harm done.
One person commented: “Is your daughter okay with it? Then it shouldn’t be an issue. Maybe it got messed up during play time or nap time or maybe another child needed their hair fixed for those issues and she felt left out and asked the teacher to help.”
Another wrote: “I really believe you are overthinking this and overreacting. I have long hair that I often style and I always have little girls at my work asking me to do their hair like mine, brush it, play with it, etc. I’d consider it a kindness that your teacher really likes your daughter and is willing to put in that time to make her feel special!”
A third said: “To me it just sounds like a very caring and sweet teacher - I bet the girls love having their hairdos changed around. If your daughter is upset about it, you could let the teacher know that your daughter is feeling sensitive about having her hair adjusted - but if she is fine with it, I would just leave it alone.”
