Hi, I’m Joelle, “The Baby Planner,” for NestHelp.com. And today, we’re here at Lazar’s Juvenile Furniture in Chicago. And, this is how and why children need hugs. Children are like sponges – they absorb both positive and negative energy. One way to ensure positive feelings is by giving your child a hug. Studies have shown that children who are hugged regularly are better able to cope in stressful situations. This leads them to better emotional health in their future relationships. Sometimes, the only way to calm a crying baby is to give them a hug, or, like my son calls it, a “snuggle.” This keeps them close to you, bonded, feeling safe, and heard. And, the best part of giving children hugs is when they come up to you, arms wide open, and give you a hug back in return. I’m Joelle, “The Baby Planner,” for NestHelp.com. Thanks for watching. This is how and why children need hugs.
