My son's teacher's aide was saying that she can't figure out the boys this year. They are constantly touching the other boys. Hugging,standing really close,slapping each other,fist bumping,etc.
For the 1st time she's ever known of,they have had to tell the boys that contact is not allowed,where before it was just between the opposite sexes. They're doing it twice as much as the girls do.
I was thinking it had something to do with the fact that a great percentage of their social interaction is online/text, and they haven't learned about personal space and social norms.

IDK but there were boys in my Son's Kindergarten class last year that used to pick him up & hug him all the time. They were nice boys ¬ being mean or rough. This year in first grade there is a boy who constantly touches/pokes him & my Son ignores him. The Teacher stops the boy when she sees it & thanks my Son for not going back at him. I think it's two things. One, the Parents are so busy with their own carp to teach the kids to keep their hands to themselves & 2nd, it's constantly on television. The inappropriate ridiculous hugging thing on the tween shows. Ultimately, the Parents are failing their kids again. IMO
