A Terrible Outcome
This seems like a terrible prank that an older sibling would do, not a parent. This mother told her little girl that if she shaved her whole head, her hair would grow thicker. Did her mom really believe this? What did she think the outcome would be from tricking her young, naive daughter like this?
Maybe she thought her daughter knew she was joking. Who is the naive one here? The mom or the daughter? Before she could stop her, her daughter quickly shaved her head, excited for the results that never occurred. It took months for her hair to grow back and she was humiliated at school.
