What is your definition of being an affectionate parent?
I have two boys, and I love cuddling with them. They’re now 10 and 12, and we still love our cuddle time. When I drop off their lunch at school, I squeeze in a quick hug and kiss… sometimes they’ll allow me to kiss them more than once.
When we go out for dinner and sit in a booth, there are times when I’ll put my arm around one of them and he’ll place his head on my shoulder. It’s our time to talk, without any distractions, and enjoy a nice meal.
I can’t imagine anyone disapproving of a mother and her son sitting cozy?
