I also have observed that each child is unique and divine. Some children need more hugs than others. I have observed this with my grandchildren. I have one grandchild that may hug me several times a day and express so much gratitude, while my other grandchildren may hug me once that day. This also makes me aware that I need to give them and my daughter hugs as well. It does not mean that I love them or they love me any less, but shows their needs are different.
