The Power Of Hugs

When I went to fetch my boy after school this evening,  the first thing he told me was "Mommy, I only got one wrong in my maths paper!".  He scored better than the previous exam.  No, I am not blogging about his academic performance here nor am I trying to boast how a hug can improve the grades in school. 

What I want to share here is how a simple yet powerful hug makes a secure and confident child in the long run.

Ian : Mommy, Your hug is so powerful! *High 5* (raises his hand and waits for mine to slap with his)
Mommy : *High 5!* See, I told you so..   (must act like a know-it-all once in a while.. hehehe....)

Yes, he is quite mature for his age to be talking like that.  I can't blame him for that as other than attending school, the rest of his time are spent with this mature mommy. :P 

It has become a habit for him to give me a peck on my cheek before he retires to bed and when I drop him off  at school every afternoon.  This habit has been instilled in him since he was a baby.  When he's upset over things, a little hug and a peck on his cheek will sure make his day.  At times when he needs some comfort and reassurance or rather something to boost his confidence, a hug will do the magic.

Try it, if you haven't already for a hug can really do wonders..

Yes, agree with you. A warm hug can boost up a child's confident, melt down all obstruction. I guess we as adult also need this from our partner too. :)

Yes...the power of the touch! Asians, especially Chinese, don't do that. I do hug my daughter...and loved ones as well as close friends. No problem with it!

I agree with the power of hug. Hugs can calm down a crying baby and also can heal a broken heart. Everyone also loves to be hugged.
