Upsherin

Question
Hello Rabbi, My child is near one year old and his hair is coming in fast. It is not our family minhag to have an "upsherin" but I have heard good things about it, such as the development of the child. Can you explain the reason behind it and where this minhag is documented? Thanks
Answer
The Sha'ar Hakavanot writes great things about this minhag and brings a story about the Ar"izl saying that when the Ariz"l's son was three years old he took him to Meron to Rashbi, had his hair cut and made three days of great happiness and festivity. Rabbi Ro'i Margalit
