If my 3-year-old asks me to shave her head, as a libertarian, why shouldn’t I comply with her request?

*** begin quote ***

Libertarians don’t preface every conversation about individual freedom with a disclaimer that we’re only talking about rules for adults, but it is usually implied.

*** end quote ***

Plus, Libertarians are not a uniform homgenous group. It’s like a clowder of cats.

Parents have a self-assumed obligation to this person.

As such, they are compelled to act in the child’s best interest.

I would ask, “why shouldn’t you comply”?

It won’t kill her. And it may well be a “learning experience for all involved?
