I wouldn’t force that on anybody.

One of my nieces is 25 now and when she was 10, her mom still made her hug everybody and she wasn’t an affectionate type person naturally so it was extra painful for her. [I’d see her pained face as had to give lots of people hugs and I felt bad for her].

When her 11th birthday rolled around, I gave her a book (I forget what it was) and on the inside I wrote that I know she doesn’t like to give hugs and I respect her right to her personal space.

She smiled when she read that which was cool because she’s usually a frowner.

My mom never forced us to hug or kiss people and I wouldn’t force that on anybody. In short, I agree with the graphic.
