Family Your Family Information Source Salina Planning Council For . Children & Families FAMILY TIP OF THE MONTH Practical Ways to Provide Love & Affection Something To Think About • Healthy, positive touch can be very nurturing and healing for adults and children. Take some time to notice just how often you touch, caress, or hug your child in a gentle, caring way. • According to "hug therapists,"'human beings need at least 11 hugs a day for healthy living. Have you hugged your child today? • Children and adults need to have a sense of belonging to a family. Provide your children with opportunities to make meaningful contributions to family activities. • Even a "difficult" child will provide moments when genuine affection is possible. ' • Some children are not responsive to touch. Be patient with these "porcupine" types. Be responsive-offer affection but be ready to back off if your child reacts negatively. Tell your child how you feel. Look for subtle ways diey show you how much they love you. Something To Talk About • Talk with your children about how family members express their affection in similar and different ways. • Talk about the different styles of family that are normal in our society today-single parent, step-parent, traditional. Talk about how die special people in your childhood-friends and relatives-showed dieir love for you, and how you expressed your affection for them. Something To Do When driving or walking with your child, play the "hug bug" game. Each time you or your child spot a Volkswagen "bug," shout "hug bug" and reach over and hug each other. • Spend time building an extended family album with your child. Share a rocking chair and look through the pictures talking about how everyone is related. • Make suck puppets with your child of each member of your family. Attach pictures from magazines or catalogs to tongue depressors. Develop a puppet show, taking the direction from your child's comments'. • Read these books with, your children: Baby Hugs by Dave Ross (Thomas Y. Crowell, 1987). Hansel and Gretel retold by Rika Lesser; illustrated by Paul O. Zelinski (Dodd, Mead. 1984). I'll Always Love You by Hans Wilhelm (Crown, 1985).
