Before Viewing: Explain to your child that together you’ll watch this video to see one way Samuel and Julia say hello to their dad without touching.
During Viewing: Pause if your child has questions, and talk together about what you’re seeing. Ask, “What do you notice that is the the same in our own family? What is different?”
After Viewing: Practice ways to show affection without touching, such as waving, sharing a silly dance, or giving “air-fives.” You might invite children to draw pictures or make decorations to greet their loved one each day, or help children find a comfort item or pillow to hug, like Samuel and Julia do.
