My son won't cuddle with me anymore :(

I can't believe he's already to that age. It feels like he was just a baby in my arms. He's 15 months now an such a big boy. At least he'll still occasionally hug me but he doesn't really like to cuddle now. Sad :( how old were your kids when they started wanting to be free to roam rather than cuddle up with you?

Both my boys are still smugglers. They are 14 and 9.

I wouldn't get too sad about it yet. My son went through a phase where he was very independent, and now he's back to being super loving.

Lucky. Lol. He has his times where he likes to be held. And he likes to cuddle when he's sick. But that's about it.

My kids still cuddle sometimes and they are far older. I've always encouraged them to roam, explore and experience their lives however is appropriate, but I've always let them know I was here for them too.

I'm willing to bet he will still want to cuddle more than you think

My son is almost 17 and we still cuddle every once in a while when he wants to (several times a month).  He will hold my hand in the store(when he wants too of course) but he wont let go either if he sees some of his friends, sometimes he will throw his arm around my shoulder for good measure. I still tuck him into bed some nights and he always lets me kiss him goodnight.  He is a very affectionate young man.  Wouldn't trade it for anything in the world :)))

DD is the same way and she is 14, although I tuck her in EVERY night, she wouldn't have it any other way and if for whatever reason I am unable (sick) she is disappointed. 

I love my kids :)))

don't worry mama, he will come back to you!! I went through the same thing with ds around that age..he just wanted to go, go, go!! But I'd say around 3 1/2-4 he came back to his mama. He is 5 now and wants to cuddle ALL THE TIME!!! It'll pass mama, no worries!

I can only hope ds will be that way when he grows up. He is only 5 now but so affectionate, caring and loving! Looks like you raised a good boy there mama, good job!!!!
