I live in the USA and I am not Muslim.
Yesterday, my 11-year-old daughter introduced me to some of the new students at her school. They were all 11 years old, both boys and girls. I shook hands with everyone, as is customary here.
I realized afterwards that one of the the girls was wearing a hijab. She is the only Muslim at the small school. She is open about her faith and has been happy to explain things to her friends. She didn't hesitate to shake my hand.
Did I put her in a bad position where she felt she had to shake my hand even though she shouldn't have? Or was it OK because she is so young?
