 An Atlanta barber shop has come up with an interesting method to discipline misbehaving kids. The owner Russell Frederick offers calls  the  special haircut the “grown up kids special” which leaves the child  looking like an old man, bald on top with close cut sides.  The method has gone viral but not all of the responses have been positive, receiving criticism from mental health professionals who don’t like the idea of shame and   strategies that humiliate children.

What’s your take? Do you approve of “the grown up kids special” as a form of discipline?

Humiliation leads to anger and low self esteem.NO. What are parents to do when the child is bullied?
