A picture of a before and after in an Elementary School has surfaced earlier this week, when the teacher decided to style one of her students “tangled” hair and post it on Facebook. Do you think this is just another post-Holidays act of kindness or is this something that the teacher should have let the parents handle?
According to this is what the teacher posted to Facebook along with a before and after picture, about the student and her hair:

“So one of my students came to school today with her hair full of knots, lent [sic], and ridiculously tangled. It looked like it hand’t been touched the entire holiday break…so my classroom became a salon. The photo on the left is before and the right after . It just broke my heart so badly that I refused to let her leave school today the same way she came. When I finished she looked at herself and said “aww so pretty”…the beauty is that she is normally non-verbal. So now I’m crying lol. My day has been made!”

As a parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent, big brother, big sister, whatever you may be… Would you feel some type of way about this teacher taking matters into her own hands or would you be glad that someone finally did the little girls hair?

What the teacher should have done, if she hadn’t already, was just simply call the parents, ask them if it was okay to do their daughters hair and then just do it… Not take pictures, talk about how you felt or post it on social media. Does she not understand that social media images can either be taken one of two ways… Either people will love it and think that you did an amazing deed for the child and the parents or it can be taken as if you should have not touched her at all.

I know that most black women take things like this pretty seriously and feel that it is no one else’s job to touch their child or groom them in any way, however, if you take it that seriously then you should have taken the grooming process seriously that morning before sending your child off to school with lint balls in her hair…

I don’t know what to think… This particular topic is all over the place and can be viewed so many ways… What do you guys think?

    i think it was a nice gesture and it seems that the child was happy. Poor judgment to post on social media and yes, maybe she should have asked permission from her parents. Some parents can get overwhelmed with job and getting everyone ready in the morning. Had she asked the parents they might have appreciated it.

    She didn’t show the little girls face or use her name. More power to her! I’m glad she took the time to do the child’s hair, someone had to!

      I agree with you. What ever happened to “it takes a village to raise a child”? As for posting the picture on social media, it is my understanding from another social media thread that it was posted to a closed group. Neither the child’s name nor face were used, no harm done. It was a nice gesture. The child loved it, and as a parent, I would not be mad. I would, however, be VERY embarrassed that someone else had to tend to my child’s grooming when it should have been me. I bet that this family may have bigger fish to fry. IJS.

    I am so tired of people feeling like it is a must to post every single thing to social media. If her intentions were pure, she just cheapened the entire act by posting it on social media. In addition, it comes off as a little self serving even if she didn’t mean it to be conveyed that way.

    If she got the parents permission she should have kept it private, if she didn’t she should have kept it private. Everybody wants to be a hero these days. She also violated the child and maybe broke a lot of laws against the minor but the parents will decide what to do with her. She’s out of line. What’s with people always worrying about other people’s children hair? Jeez.

    There are certainly lots of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to carry up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place a very powerful thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Each boys and girls really feel the impression of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
