Try massage Baby rubdowns help preemies gain weight faster and improve sleep quality.
Be random Tell your child you love her during dinner, riding in the car, or after she makes you laugh.
Discipline affectionately Touch your kids even when they’re acting naughty. If one sibling whacks another, for example, get down to his level, hold his hand or rub his back, and say “We don’t hit. Hitting hurts!”
Get creative If your child just isn’t a cuddler, you can still connect in smaller ways: Ruffle his hair, roughhouse with him (yep, this counts!), dance together, or exchange winks.

Give hugs in good times — and bad It’s easy to be affectionate when your kid is being an angel, but it can be even more powerful to give him a big, loving squeeze after an argument.
Respect her limits Try not to smother your child if she’s annoyed by it, and don’t force her to kiss or hug anyone she doesn’t want to (Great-Auntie will have to get over it). You also needn’t stress about being Super Affectionate Mom all the time to make sure your child feels loved. She does!

“There is an incredible amount of isolation in the white community…because people haven’t learnt to belong. Nobody should be homeless in this land, and yet there is an incredible amount of homeless people. You cannot build a nation until there is a national spirit.” ~ Kevin Gilbert
