Re: My mother cut my daughters hair without my permission

This is horrible to have happened. Do talk straight with your mother about boundaries and try not to lose the relationship for the future. She is out of line and you may have to keep putting up fence posts but losing your mother, father and your childrens' grandparents in the long run would be so sa...
