Sometimes we all just need a hug! With your child, watch the video about how hugs can help us feel better.

Then have a hugging contest. See if you and your child can share the biggest hug in the world! When your little one seems sad, angry, or upset, trying giving them a hug. Gestures such as putting your hand on your child’s head or shoulder are other ways that can provide a moment of comfort to help children feel safe and loved.
