Im not suggesting he would do something to physically harm them, im more concerned that he will make decisions such as drastic hair cuts, ears pierced etc when they are not of an age that they can say that is what they want.I also wouldnt have minded if he had taken her to a hairdresser and had it done properly but i do object to him letting his girlfriend hack at her hair with a pair of kitchen scissors.

We has a member here some time ago who was in a similar situation.

I think its quite emotive subject for some: having a daughters hair cut. But as you say, it grows back, no lasting damage has been done.

I''m not a hairdresser and I cut my own fringe and have cut my nieces too. When my daughter is old enough I''ll do hers too. Just to save money and time really.

Did your daughter want to have a fringe? Was she distressed that she had it cut?

As upset as you are about this, I would recommend that you choose your battles. The potential extended ripples this upset causes can get out of perspective and this probably will cause more damage and upset.

Yes, he can parent your (joint) children in his time.

Try not to think everything he does is to get at you, it probably is what it is: a haircut. :)

Take care
