Can I Touch Your Hair?

I enjoyed this exhibit immensely. I have experienced this myself but the discussion has become even more meaningful now that I have children. I have written about my hair experiences as a parent and about how others possess a sense of entitlement when interacting with them. Many see nothing wrong  with invading their personal space and feel it perfectly okay to reach over and grab their spongy locks.

Check out the link to the article written by Sara Critchfield on on Upworthy.com that discusses the exhibit:
