(0 votes)
Add to favourites

As we enter into the holiday season, where many of us will spend time with extended family and friends, parents should remember to pay attention to their children’s comfort levels, especially when it comes to physical affection. We want our children to be kind and considerate, so it is tempting to ask them to give hugs and kisses to family members and friends. But when children are nervous or shy, or just do not want to, it is important to honor their personal boundaries — and it teaches them a great lesson about consent over who interacts with them and their bodies. You can suggest alternatives, like high-fives or fist bumps. For more information, read: Why you shouldn’t force your kids to hug relatives.
