But OP probably doesnt see it this way. OP, if you are a single parent, you are probably screwed. But if you arent, use your wife/ husband if ur gay to explain to your daughter that its just you and that its just hair that can grow back.

The same thing happened to me when I was little, I didn't recognize my dad when he shaved! It didn't take too long to figure out, and no psychological scars were made!

Just wanted to point out that kids are taught wrong out who to be cautious around. Teaching stranger danger is technically a bad idea as most likely if someone were to harm and or abduct a child it is someone the child know, like a family member. While it does happen with strangers, I don't think it's quite as often.

This happened to me with my grandfather when I was 4. No amount of everyone saying it was him would get me to relax. But don't worry, OP, eventually she'll come around; no physical change could hide my papa from me & your little girl will recognize her daddy soon enough.


This same thing happened with me and my Dad when I was quite little. He always had a moustache and suddenly he shaved it off one day. I wouldn't talk to him and told him he "wasn't my Daddy anymore" lol. I huffed for a couple days over it!

I remember when I was a kid, and my dad shaved his head for the first time. I was terrified, until he put his hat on. Then I was like "oh yeah, it's THAT guy!" Man, I was a dumb kid....

My dad shaved off his moustache once when I was 4 and it was hard for me to recognize him. Small children just don't notice as many details as teens/adults.

Aw, don't worry, it happens. My dad's had a beard my whole life, and one time when I was a teenager he came home clean shaven because his barber had goofed, and I was pretty much like, "O_______O No. Grow it back." XD

I can relate with OP's daughter's feelings. My dad always has a beard, until he doesn't, and then I cannot look at him without feeling strange. It's a lot like looking at a stranger.
