  • When I had settled the both of us down and thanked God that it didn’t end worse, I researched. 

    It turns out we aren’t the first ones this has happened to.

    I don’t know how she got tangled in my hair, but it was by far one of the scariest moments of my life. I thought my daughter was going to strangle to death while she was attached to me; I don’t want any other parent to experience that fear.

    I never would have dreamed something like this could happen . . . but if I can save one parent from going through it, telling my story is worth it. So, from one mother who learned the hard way the unexpected dangers long hair can pose, please be careful and aware.
