First Haircut – Hair Today Wig Tomorrow

first haircut

I want my child to be able to make her own choices when it comes to her body, including hair.  My daughter was born with beautiful red curly hair. I wanted her to continue growing her hair until she was ready. There have been numerous times during brushings that I have threatened to cut it. I declined from doing so. It would have felt like I was torturing her. The decision for her first haircut had to be hers. Over the past few years, each morning and evening had been hair … Continue reading

Apartment Building Security Guards leave Tenants Unsecured

Security Guards

We are supposed to feel safe, knowing our building has Security Guards patrolling the premises. Many do not.  The security guards don’t really do their job.
