‘MOTHER SAYS SHE IS OUTRAGED HER 5 YEAR-OLD SON WAS SENT HOME FROM SCHOOL BECAUSE HIS HAIR WAS BLUE‘- Headline of an article on the DM’s website.
Now, call me old fashioned but should parents really be allowing their 5 year-old children to go to school with blue hair?
The article stated that the child picked up the blue hair gel after having his hair cut at his local barbers and that his mother was called by the school to take him home and bring him back when it was washed out.
His mother told sources that she was outraged and that the hair gel was bought because it was the same colour of his favourite football team. It also matched the school uniform…
Regardless of if it matched the schools uniform or not, if it is school policy not to go in with brightly dyed hair then parents should understand when they get called in to take their child home and not to return them to school until it is washed out.
It isn’t rocket science and I really don’t understand why his mother was making such a big deal out of it. End of the day common sense would tell any reasonable parent that sending your child to school with blue hair might result in them being sent home.
Society these days really makes me wonder.
