It’s Global Hug Your Kid Day!

Today we celebrate the bond that exists between parents and children.  The idea behind it is simple:  show your children how much you love them with a hug!

A hug is a comfort, a demonstration of trust, and a feeling of safety.  And whether or not they reciprocate (ahem…teenagers..cough, cough), all children want to be hugged.

Wrap em’ up in a big bear hug on Global Hug Your Kid Day!!
