The kindness effect

To the hairdresser who change how people saw my child with special needs, by Meredith Howell (The Mighty). The author relates a story of the judgment she and her child experienced in the hairdresser’s waiting room- and how the hairdresser’s kindness and accommodation of her child’s needs changed the attitude of the entire waiting room. ¬†I have seen this happen myself- it only takes one person to stand alongside the family, to change that toxic group mentality.
