hmm, I don't know. hugs maybe kisses, I don't know. I think I would be okay if it happened to an older child but I have a thing against strange hugs and kisses on my baby baby.

|I think a 4-5 year old is old enough to start to understand that people have personal spaces, and that you may not touch another person's body unless they want to be touched. That includes hugging and kissing and whatever else. This kid obviously didn't know you, so he would have had no idea if your daughter was receptive to being loved on.|
