Most Helpful Girl
It's very important to give children options. So much of their lives they ha e no control of yet and that's why saying no all the time and having tantrums tend to happen. I'm not sure why she can't wear her hair down or her mother insists on it. But how her pictures of different pony tails, braided, high on the head, low on the head etc and let her choose which one. If she still wants it to be down then all you can do is force her. But honestly over such a little thing as her hair style I won't force her. She's just now starting to have her own voice and ideas and opinions, we want our children to grow up and take action and be decisive. She is learning to be decisive now.

Why not just let her wear her hair down? Pigtails look weird anyway.
