Hugs are essential! Some kids today are so afraid of connecting with others that they get emotionally insecure or detached, suffering mentally because they lack empathy and don’t know how to show emotions. It all begins and ends with the family.
The family is the most crucial building block of any society. A father and mother should support each other and not be afraid to laugh, cry or show anger. We watch our elders and learn. That is how all animals grow and learn to handle difficult situations. We are still animals, even if God granted us a free conscience and a special place in creation.
