Show Affection to Your Kids

My mom is a very affectionate person. It’s something I love about her. Recently, she helped in my sister’s classroom (she’s a kindergarten teacher). At the end of the day, my mom was saying goodbye to the kids and she got on her knees and gave one of them a hug. When she finished, she looked up and there was a line of kids waiting for hugs. There are many ways to show affection to our kids and they need it. It’s a crucial piece that can have a great impact on them. But showing affection is not something that comes naturally for some men. So, how do we meet this need of our kids when it’s something that is not always natural and, for some, uncomfortable? Do we leave this up to Mom?
