Barber Gives ‘Benjamin Button’ Haircuts To Punish Misbehaving Children

Do you also see this as a disciplinary tool?

For most children, discipline like extra chores, being grounded, and losing privileges is enough to teach them, but then it turns out that some require a more radical approach. A big thanks to A-1 Kutz, an Atlanta Barbershop, which has adopted a unique last resort named “Benjamin Button Special” for children who try to act grown. 

Russell Frederick of A-1 Kutz offers parents a new way of punishing their misbehaving children.

The disciplinary approach involves shaving off the top of their hair to make them look like balding old men.

Owner Russel “Rusty Fred” Frederick had first used the approach on his 12-Year-Old son, and it involves shaving away the hair on top of the head while leaving the sides alone, giving the kids a classic bald old man appearance. Washington Post reported that after Frederick’s son got a schoolyard shaming due to the haircut, his falling grades dramatically skyrocketed.

Frederick started advertising the unique punishment after using it successfully on his son, who at the time got a schoolyard shaming.

It wasn’t long before another parent came to him for help, and it was indeed those photos that have since gone viral. The 10-Year-Old [pictured below] was brought in by his single mom, who had reached her limit with how he was misbehaving ins school. While some people have questioned the choice of public humiliation as a disciplinary tool, Frederick has insisted he sees it as a last resort.

Interest in the offer skyrocketed after Frederick gave this boy whose parents brought him in the haircut.

Initially, the boy didn’t care about the haircut, but his smirk quickly disappeared in the after picture.

“I hope that most people won’t have to do this unless it’s an extreme circumstance and nothing else is working. First, you talk or implement your restrictions. But when the conventional ways don’t work these days, you have to get creative,” Frederick explained, adding that the effects of the old man cut lasted for months with his son. 

Some people questioned the disciplinary tool, but Frederick has insisted he sees it as a last resort.

As with the boy in the viral pics, his shaming reportedly lasted for days. He had even started calling himself “Old Man Jenkins,” and his mom thought the lesson had been learned. However, Frederick was happy to shave down the sides to match the fresh stubble on the boy’s crown, fixing the cut. He said: “He understood why it happened, and he rolled with it and allowed it to make him stronger. You gotta reach these kids somehow, and I would gladly do it again.”
