How Hugging Makes Kids Happier, Healthier and Self-confident

To survive, kids need the basic necessities like food, shelter, and medical attention. However, surviving is not thriving. For a kid to truly thrive, they need lots of hugs and other forms of affection.

There's actually a scientific basis for this. Hugging stimulates the production of oxytocin, the hormone most important in forming bonds and creating trust. This powerful hormone also reduces fear while increasing the capacity for generosity and compassion. In order words, elevated oxytocin allows your child to function better in society, get along better with peers, and not automatically distrust other adults like teachers and child care attendants. With higher oxytocin, you child will also feel more assured at home so he or she is more willing to try new things.
