H is for hugs. Kids need affection, but in this day and age, teachers are afraid to be affectionate with their students because of a few bad apples who took touching their students too far. But we can hug our kids with joy when they master a new concept, or when they need encouragement, or just because we feel like it. (One of my favorite sayings is “Always give in to the impulse to hug your child.”) Homeschooled children can grow up secure in their family’s love, with affection being a daily event.
