Mother Says Kids' Program Shaved Daughter's Head Without Her Permission

Mother Says Kids' Program Shaved Daughter's Head Without Her Permission”

A mother is demanding answers after her daughter's head was shaved.

According to Denise Robinson, her daughter Tru had long hair before a clinician at Little Heroes Group Home in Dracut took her to a salon where she was given a buzz cut.

A mom is furious after she found out her 7-year-old daughter's head was shaved clean at a state-run program for kids with behavioral needs. "And I'm not going to stop being upset because I feel like my child was assaulted and violated". The volunteer allegedly asked Tru if it was okay to shave her head and the little girl agreed. Enraged by the incident, Robinson took to Facebook to vent about her anger and disbelief.

The program has released a statement to local news outlets explaining that 'decisions regarding grooming are based on a variety of factors, including hygiene'.

Robinson has since met with the school and shared that both the school and the volunteer have accepted responsibility, although she is still unhappy.

"There was no hygenical reson to shave my childs head".

"There was no head lice, there was no bedbugs, there was no Rasta locks was going on. Her hair was two ponytails on the side on Saturday, it was braided in the ponytails, there was nothing wrong with her hair", she said.

"For them to do this, it's very upsetting, not just to me but to her", Denise said.

Little Heroes says they are reviewing what happened.

DCF will not say whether or not they are investigating.
