The main reason he has grown locks is because he has alopecia areata (patches of hair loss).Hi Tish,
I'll be interested to see what you learn. I've been curious as to whether I'll have to chop my son's shaggy, surfer hairdo when he enters school. Just curious, why not just cut the hair, it grows back??
No worries. You weren't to know. Thanks anyway.Tish,
please excuse my question if it seemed at all insensitive. I am familiar with this condition and it's challenges as I have friends with alopecia. although they didn't have the fortune of retaining any hair.
Much luck with your search. Although I am currently researching the SE coast, I will surely let you know if I find any bilingual institutions that have more relaxed rules in regards to boys and their hair length.
I've given one particular school my son's medical records to support his reasons for having locks. The headteacher is in the process of discussing with others at the school will get back. The headteacher says that the general consensus, so far, is that my son may have trouble getting into any school here in the Dominican Republic if he keeps his hair long.Alopecia is a horrible thing for anyone, especially a young person, and there should be no resitsance to his hairstyle at school.
