I believe hugs are the answer. To just about anything.
Should we get out of bed in the morning? Start with a hug.
Am I being kind to my sister (or brother) Hug it out.
Having a bad day? You need a hug.
Tough decision to be made? Take 3 minutes to hug someone you love.
Haven’t seen someone in a too long? Hug. Definitely.
Angry? Really… really angry? Yes. HUG. It will help you to diffuse.
I’m not a perfect parent. Well…sometimes I am. Perfectly disorganized. Perfectly guaranteed to make mistakes, lose my patience, yell too often, and forget to pack lunch. Also? Perfect at hugs.
Because I believe they are essential to my the well being and self esteem of my small people.
Who have you hugged today?
