Why do we feel the need to sit on other people?

I love to cuddle my babies and hubby. My children always want to sit on our laps. I find myself wanting to sit on hubby's lap. My boys like to climb on each other and when hubby was younger he would sit on his brothers when they were picking on him. Do we have any psych majors in cafemom land who may know?

  • I believe it is something we carry with us from when we were young babies. When we were comforted, someone usually held it. It just makes you feel good, and safe :)

  • I don't think it has anything to do with pshycology. I just think it's about bonding and being close to one another.

  • In psychology, touch is essential to child development. It basically translates to love, attention and security. A lot of nonverbal communication comes from sensorimotor interaction.

    that is psychology.
    the need for bonding and being close to each other basically is based on psychological needs.
