Kissing Grandma Has Negative Impact, Report says

The Guardian reports, “This is what this article is NOT about: it’s not about forbidding a willing child to sit on Granny’s knee, or giving Grandpa a kiss, or cuddling Auntie Kate. It’s not about being overly politically correct or trying to stop normal family life.

What it is about is this: children have powerful instincts, and sometimes adults override those instincts for social niceties that suit the adult, not the child. Sometimes children don’t want to kiss a relative or family friend, for all sorts of reasons, and yet adults want them to because otherwise it doesn’t look nice, or seem polite. In being coerced to kiss or cuddle someone they don’t want to, that child is being told that how they feel, what they want to do with their own bodies, doesn’t really matter. That an adult’s wishes and sensibilities matter more.
