Some hug, others don't
This mom comes from a family where some hug and some don't.
I come from a double sided family where on the one side the people didn't hug or show any affection to the other side that was very affectionate. Which was why I decided that when I had kids I will hug & kiss them as much as possible & tell them I love them until I get blue in the face.
Now, I have 3 beautiful boys. Ages 12, 10 & 4 and we can't get enough of hugging each other. When we walk past each other in the house we will give one another a hug or a kiss. And I tell my boys I love them on more than one occasion a day. I feel you can never say it to much to your child. And I also use to rub noses with them when they were younger but now the oldest 2 don't want to do it any more because its not cool, so I respect that. The youngest makes up for it in abundance though. And it is the nicest thing to be able to just go to my son and give him a hug and have that loving response without any hesitation or falseness.Marlise & kids
