Think twice about the school you put your child in. Drake looked great with pink hair and I in no way see this as a distraction. Read what a school's rules says is allowed and not allowed before you enroll your child in any school. Schools are supposed to teach, not control and mold our children.

LMAO, allowing freaky attention-getting kids to have pink hair is the gold standard for any school's academic excellence.

I instructed everyone to dye their pubes green and white to show team unity. And yet we still suck.

I am unsure of what happened to this "Drake" kid, but I can say my child is enrolled in the Watseka school district and doesn't have "normal" colored hair due to dye. The school system has yet to say anything to him about it. Then again, my son is an honor roll student, maybe that has something to do with it? I don't know. I would march straight into the principles' office if they tried to discipline him for it, I am a firm believer that my child should be able to express his own personality in his own way, as long as it does not harm him, or those around him.

Hair dyes are not real healthy number one, and its great to express yourself but there are other ways to do this! I once had colored hair and piercings and i eventually outgrew that stage. Maybe im just over-reacting to this.your his parent you know whats best good luck!

When I was a kid I didn't care about expressing my personality or freaky hair dyes. I cared about mom, apple pie, baseball, and daddy's stack of nudie mags.

I think he will outgrow this stage as well, but I don't want to teach him that it's not alright to be yourself or express who you really are. However, with the piercings that's a definite no. I wouldn't allow him to do something permanent such as that, or tattoos. Well, not until he's of age to get them done. But personally, I see nothing wrong with dying your hair. Whether it's pink, green, blue, or whatever color they decide.

Im betting the school has a policy giving them the right to exert control over individual style if its "distracting" to other students....and Im betting none of you read the student handbook like you were asked to when your kids were enrolled.

Now you're going to go online and cry about it...I bet if your kid was getting bullied for his dyed hair it'd be the schools responsibility to protect him.

At what point do parents take ANY responsibility for ANYTHING in 2012. How about the schools just run a 24 hour babysitting service? Then you would only have to see your kids when you want and could blame the school every time they f*ck up.

Why dont you all pretend you have some class.
