How free haircuts make kids feel good

about going back to school

During the last weeks of August, kids of all ages have trouble with transitions, from summer holiday to school. Both children and parents typically have anxiety about going back to school at the end of summer.

Jermaine Smith of Cleveland decided to do his part to ease some of that worry this year. He and four other barbers at his Premier Barber Studio cut the hair of about 40 kids and teens for free last Saturday.

“On the first day of school, you want to look your best, "Smith says. “When you get your hair cut, you look good; you feel good. ” Smith has been repaying the community in other ways long before this weekend. He cuts hair by day, but in the evenings, after taking his daughter home from school, he goes to his second job as a police officer. “All the kids know they can come to me for anything,Smith says. “ A lot of parents bring their kids to me for haircuts because I'm a police officer. They trust our work in the barber shop. ”

Since he started cutting hair almost 20 years ago, he's found ways to give a free cut to the kids who he thinks might need it. “I always tell young men that they always stay perfectly groomed(打扮),” Smith says. “When you have a haircut, people have a tendency(倾向)to treat you with respect. ”

Maybe a service that would only cost $ 15 regularly seems like just a drop in the bucket, but the child and teen psychologist Barbara Greenberg sees this as more than just a one-time free service. He says, “One of the ways to make going back to school easier is fun and introduces some novelty, so the whole idea of getting a haircut that's free makes kids feel special and important. Self-care makes all of us at any age feel better. ”
