Oh My God!!!! Teens are hugging in schools !!!! What are we going to do about it ?

Do Schools That Ban Hugs Go Too Far? - Zosia Bielski - Globe and Mail - Jan 21, 2011. Slapping and whacking hands (hi-fiving)  has become epidemic in that we teach even our babies to MNOT touch too much. We teach them to "hit" "whack" "slap" the other person - (but nicely). . . .as if that is a sane and intelligent way of showing affection. Teens seem to have had enough (thank God for them. . . ) Maybe they know something we don't. Like, maybe they know that hugging is a lot warmer a reception and good-bye thing than we stupid "body-phobic" adults do.
