I always make sure each of mine do. Dd's only 6 so she's still ok with it, ds who is 8 is much more hesitant but still does to appease me. Dh day's I'm being mean and embarrassing him by making sure he does. I disagree, I'm not making a big spectacle or anything just a "hey Owen come here!" *hugs* "love ya, have a good day." I guess I just feel like you never know what's going to happen between then and the end of the school day & I want them to always know that they're loved. I would hope that even when he's 16, he'll still let me give him that tiny bit of affection every day.
