Five year old M does not want to have bangs! That is very clear. We have been trying to grow them out, so I thought it was strange when she told me wanted me to cut her bangs. I did and then she said, "Cut them all the way, Mom."
I tried to explain, but all she knows is she doesn't want them, so cut them off.
If I had a digital camera, I would show you what she did to her Dora doll.
Bangs cut down to the roots.
