Between us, we have two teenagers. Mine is of the male variety. Today, he asked about getting his hair cut. He can get it cut for free from his Dad however, he doesn't always like that. So, I said that you can ask your Dad and see what he says OR you can bike on Monday to get it cut. See he has to get it cut for his JROTC and he has to have it be short. Well, Dad is free but sometimes does an all over cut whereas when he pays for it is more to his liking.
I told him today to ask his Dad if he will trim it otherwise he can ride his bike to get it done on Monday. I was told that if the choice is pedal power or Dad cutting it for free, he will take free. Now, if I will drive him, he is all over that!
