That's both a sad and hopeful story. Sad because the two women were so unaccepting, and hopeful because regardless of those same two women, the other family still had a great time together.
I was at the park the other day and observed the most disgusting episode. There was a mom playing with her two daughters. She was pushing them on the swings, laughing with them and even going down the slide. She and her kids all had natural hair. One girl had a beautiful afro and the other had long natural braids. Granted, it was obvious that the braids had been done a while ago and there was some frizz on top - okay, a lot of frizz but she still looked beautiful and angelic. The whole family was amazing.
Sitting on a bench were two women - one with obviously relaxed pink hair and the other with a weave. Their girls were playing on the swings and every time they came up to ask their moms to play, the moms shoved them away and said they were busy. Those girls had perfect little corn rows and braids. The two moms pointed at the natural mom and her kids and kept talking about what a bad mother she was to leave her kids like that and that the kids looked to' up and that they would never let their kids look like that.
It was so sad, what they saw as messy and "to' up", I saw as a happy family with beautiful natural healthy hair.
Sorry this was so long...my point was that bonding between mom and daughters can happen in many ways, at the salon, at the playground, etc...althought the two mean moms and their kids probably had lots of "hair bonding" time together, their interactions didn't seem positive to me.
I suppose there is always going to be people who look on certain people and simply cannot accept their differences as unique rather than odd. There were some parts of that Tyra show that nearly made me cry, but I'm still hopeful that people will continue to grow and see natural hair, and all hair really, as beautiful.
