as a kid, jason todd used to braid catherine todd’s when she was out of it or feeling depressed or just as a mother-son bonding activity and he got pretty fuckin good at it. he started out doing just a typical braid but got bored of that and learned how to do some beautiful french plaits, fishtail braids, upside down braids, milkmaid braids

the batfam found out because one day baby jason offered to braid barbara’s hair for her and this was a story she told to cass and steph so one day they tracked jason down and at first he was ready for a fight but then steph asked him to do their hair and after a brief “wtf” and obligatory grumpy resistance he obliged because he secretly loves it

it’s also incredibly calming for jason and he enjoys letting the batgirls gently bully him into doing their hair because any activity that helps him to relax and focus on thing other than his intrusive thoughts are good activities
