The Giver.At the age of 3, each child needs to have hair ribbons and for boy head dresses. Those are the community rules. But now i need to know what do the hair ribbons and hair dresses symbolize ?
Why ?
And how do they relate to the outside world or to a book or movie ?
PLEASE HELP

    Don't the hair ribbons and hair dresses represent sameness and mirror our fads and customs?

    Look around you. Why can girls wear pants but guys can't wear skirts? Why can girls hug each other but most guys don't hug each other? In some neighborhoods doing well in school is cause for ridicule.

    I'm sure you can find other examples of sameness among your family, friends, and acquaintances.
