Physical Affection
Hugs, kisses, cuddles.
A pat on the back or high-five.
Fist bumps and secret handshakes.

All common ways to give affection and physically show you care. Your child is only this age once, and affection is something they’ll remember for years to come.

An Idea

Pair physical affection with specific praise. For example:

A high-five or a hug
“Nice job! You’re coloring quietly all by yourself.”
