Last week Dr. Jane Nelsen posted the parenting tool of Hugs. I wholeheartedly endorse the concept of hugs and I've had some success in the past with this parenting tool. But hugging is not something that comes easy for me. As a single dad with a son, I can relate to the Verizon commercial below.
My son and I don't go around hugging each other very often, but we manage to show each other that we care in other ways. The key concept is the connection you create with your children. So whether that is a hug or a high five, your children will feel the connection and know that you love them.
