Affection in Infancy & Childhood

Love Lessons

Reason #365 to hug your babies and children. Mom's caresses may have long-lasting effects on child's overall mental health, a study from Brown University in Providence, RI, finds. Researchers followed 500 people from infancy through their thirties. Young children who received the most affection turned out to be happier and less anxious than those who got less from their parents. Hug away!
