At what age is it NOT okay for a Teacher to comfort a student with a hug?


Teachers are often with students more than their parents, especially in lower grades. It is natural to hug a child to comfort them. However, in light of all the abuse in our world, is it still permissible? Until what age is it appropriate? Would you, as a parent, prefer a teacher NEVER hug a child, or is it okay? What alternative do you suggest? How do we protect our children while keeping education personable?

    I totally agree. It is important for children to have comfort and understanding. In addition, it is the role of all school personnel to safeguard our children! Thanks for reading and commenting!
