But on the other hand, many relationships between parents and children become neglected, and this triggers disharmony in the family, even something that is not good for the child’s psychological development. Many things cause this to happen, one of which is because of economic and work demands that make parents lose time to be with their children. Sometimes due to busyness, parents have to rush out early in the morning because of their work and come home when the children are asleep. If this is the case, one way parents can get closer to their children even though they have little time is by hugging their children.
Hugs from parents to children can create a strong emotional bond and affection between the child and the parents. Getting a hug means getting support, and for those who hug it, it will generate self-confidence. The presence of endomorphine hormones that appear when you hug can reduce nervous tension and blood pressure. Even research at the University of Italy shows that children who often get a hug from their parents will be more effective in recovering from depression, and will have confidence to solve various problems. Even a hug during early initiation, as soon as the baby is born into the world, will transfer a type of microorganism that makes the baby’s immune system stronger. And when this affectionate hug is continued until childhood, it can make the child less stressful (Research Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health). Do not believe in the myth that says that children who often get hugs will become crybaby, on the contrary, psychologically, children who often get caresses, touches and affectionate hugs from their parents will grow up to be loving children, with healthy growth, will feel comfortable and have a high level of trust.
Hug your child before you go to work, hugging a child doesn’t take that much time anyway. Embrace the sincere, do not be in a hurry, pour out all your affection and love when you hug your child. When you come home from work, even though your child is fast asleep, hug him even though he is sleeping. Take the time to sleep with her from time to time and hug her. Even though they are in the subconscious, a parent’s hug while sleeping can still strengthen the bonding between parents and children, because when they sleep, children are still in alpha waves, which are still able to receive stimuli and vibrations from feelings of love and affection. his parents.
