I don't know if this is "debatable" but I'd like some advice/opinions from SAHM's and WOHM.


I'm starting to think about putting my toddlers in DC once they are about 2 yrs old. I don't WOH and don't plan

I never hug cautiously -- I hug with extreme abandon --

 

Yes. We. Did.

When I was in children's ministry, we actually received training on *how to hug*.

I love to give and receive hugs. My kids are very cuddly probably because I am always hugging and smooching them.


I give my Brownie scouts hugs too. Only when they approach me with a hug first. I just don't know others limits with personal space and don't want to be wrongly accused of something.


The world does need more hugs but I think teachers are very reserved with the hugs as the kids get older. I have a friend who was charged for sexual harassment for hugging a second grade boy (she was a teacher). She was put on administrative leave and it ruined her career. You never know how a hug will be perceived by the child or their parents.
