“Punk rock Willz”
Not only is she sporting a pretty radical shaved-side blue hairstyle at the moment, but she’s also learnt to drive – under her proud dad’s supervision.
Carey shared a photo and a video on his Instagram overnight.
“Punk rock Willz ready for harvest this morning. #farmkid” he captioned the update.
The photo Carey shared captures Willow looking very happy with her new hairdo, staring straight down the barrel of the camera.
The video shows the eight-year-old in the driver’s seat of some kind of outdoorsy vehicle.
She’s not just sitting there, she’s actually driving the thing – and doing it beautifully.

“I’ll park over here for now,” Willow says calmly, perched on the edge of her seat.
“Perfect,” is her dad’s encouraging response.

Loving my punk rock daughter. Remember everyone, fly your own flag. There is no box to be put in. Its better to be your own self. Own it, and love it. And if anyone has a problem with it, tell them (politely) to move on. Cant wait to see the woman you grow up to be. I have a feeling you are gonna be strong, fierce, companionate, and caring. I’m so proud of you, willow.
Carey was pretty much running the parenting police gauntlet by sharing the video of Willow driving, but the critics were few and far between. In fact, we didn’t spot any, for a change. Hooray!
Instead, people congratulated this family on giving their kids the space to be themselves and providing interesting opportunities.
“That’s a serious concentration face when she’s driving!!” one follower posted.
“So awesome that your kiddos get this experience!!” another fan posted. “My kiddos go work on my mom’s little ranch with all her animals. Great childhood memories and experience!!!”
“She is the epitome of a free spirit – held up by supportive parents who understand that kids are happiest when they love themselves and the skin they’re in,” one follower asserted. “Parenting done right.”
