The importance of a hug.
Physical contact such as a hug are important for our develop and our well-being, not just when we are children but as adults as well. Obviously, we can’t force a hug and sometimes it’s not appropriate. So, what can we do if a child is resistant to a hug or its not appropriate?
As a mentor I use a Hug Monster, a designated teddy for hugs. Here are a couple that are available on Amazon.
