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?
