Easy and Cute Hairstyles for Active Kids with Short Hair

My daughter is four years old now. Over these years, I have tried a few simple and cute hairstyles for her. My baby wasn’t born with a full head of hair. She had scanty hair at birth and I couldn’t wait for her to have enough hair so that I could tie cute ponytails, pigtails and what not… girl mom dream, right?

Well, as she grew, so did her hair. So, if your baby is born with little or no hair, don’t worry; it will come gradually! Anyway, when she finally had enough hair for me to tie those cute bands and bows, well she wouldn’t sit still šŸ˜‰ Do you face the same thing? The child would not move a quarter of a millimeter while watching the TV but ask her to sit still for a few minutes while trying that perfect hair partition or tying that hair band – you gotta win an award for getting that right!

But before you know, she is 4 or 5 years old and demands a different / smart / particular hairstyle! And then you feel a joy like never before… that happened to me yesterday. So I thought of putting together some of the hairstyles I have tried on her in a video on our YouTube Channel Mom and Ideas (Video/Link below). Remember, whatever hairstyle you try on your kid, you need ascertain that it is not too tight for her and she should definitely feel comfortable.

12 Things about Humanity to Teach Kids: Summer Vacation Checklist 1 – Humanity

My 4-year-old daughter’s summer vacation begins today! While I am researching and making a list of all the things, trips and activities we want to do during these hot 7 weeks, I have come up with the following list to help her be a better human being.

Feel free to use this list as your reference if you like to teach the same (or a version of this) to your kids. Of course, many more things will follow.

1. Understanding the basics of what kids/friends with autism, ADHD, asthma and other mental/physical challenges go through and how to be understanding and compassionate while around with them without letting them feel any different.

2. Be kind to animals, birds and nature. Plant some seeds, place water for thirsty birds.

3. Be nice, kind and respectful to all people and kids.

4. Share and help willingly with a smile.

5. Be compassionate with those who are sick.

6. All people are different. Respect everyone’s opinions, preferences, beliefs in their Gods/Atheism. Don’t say someone is wrong if their beliefs are different from us.

7. Never hurt anyone. Apologize when you are wrong. Forgive those who hurt you.

8. Sometimes there are some bad people, be careful and look out for your friends too.

9. Believe in yourself. Stand up for yourself and your friends, you are strong.

10. Don’t use bad words or do name calling. Calling someone mad/pagal is a very bad thing to say. It is a serious mental illness.

11. Don’t make fun of anyone. Be funny to make people happy but don’t laugh at anyone.

12. You can tell everything, every single thing to your parents. Especially, when someone says not to tell the parents something (mostly for younger kids).

Well, we all have different opinions and ways of thinking. But the above is just our way of raising her. This is just a checklist so that I ensure that with examples or stories I make her realize and understand the above.

So while summer vacation will be loaded with lots of fun and activities, I also intend to help her be a good and kind human being. Baby steps towards a better future of humankind.
