... how to deal? My son who is 5 1/2 is unusually compassionate, deep, and full of empathy. For awhile now he's gotten into the habit of touching us casually while talking. Like a hand on the shoulder kind of thing. He seems to have an internal level of appropriateness, as he's never done it with a peer/kid/friend, only teens and adults. It seemed to creep out 86 yr old great granny though. I don't want to discourage since he's SO sensitive and kind, he just wants to connect & make sure he has peoples attention I think. What to say??

i don't know , but my niece is like that. she wants to sit on EVERYONE'S lap, even total strangers. maybe explain to him that it's ok with mom and dad, but it can be uncomfortable, or even dangerous, with other people. it's too bad we have to teach our kids to tone down the affection, but that's just the way it is :( GL
