There might be a connection between being unloved and the mental strain it causes to the little guy and having physical problems: high blood pressure, bad cholesterol and so on.
Children who are loved have a lower risk of having things go wrong with them later.
More hugs? Love? Attention? Kindness? Caring?
That’s all I need to have a lower chance of having something major go wrong with me later in life?
“Doc, I don’t feel well.”
“Go home and get some hugs from your daddy.”
“Doc, I think I am coming down with something.”
“Go home and give your mommy a big hug and kiss.”
I can’t believe people have a bigger chance of getting sick just because their mommies and daddies didn’t love them enough when they were little.
Me? I am loved so much I am going to turn out super pooper healthy.
