This Barber Will Shame Your Misbehaving Kid by Giving Him an Old Man's Haircut

Russell Fredrick is a barber and the owner of A-1 Kutz Barber Shop & Salon in Snellville, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. If your child is misbehaving, you can threaten to take him to Fredrick's shop for a "Benjamin Button Special." That's a haircut that will make him look like a balding man. Fredrick offers this service free of charge.

The haircut is named for the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a story about a man who ages in reverse. Fredrick says that giving his own son a Benjamin Button was highly effective, so he kindly offers it to other parents. The Washington Post reports:

Fredrick, the A-1 Kutz co-owner and a 34-year-old father of three, said he decided to advertise the cut after he used the unique disciplinary measure on his 12-year-old son, Rushawn, last fall — and saw immediate results. Rushawn’s grades, which had fallen, “dramatically skyrocketed” after he got his old-man haircut, Frederick said.

The boss barber said he has already had one parent take him up on the offer. And there has been a surge of interest from other parents, especially after Fredrick posted before, during and after photos of his second “Benjamin Button” subject on social media last week.

It's certainly different, and according to the barber's own quote, effective: "saw immediate results. Rushawn’s grades, which had fallen, “dramatically skyrocketed” after he got his old-man haircut, Frederick said."

I see this as psychological abuse equivalent to corporal punishment. If a child is being harassed and bullied both at home and at school, where can s/he turn for solace?
