7 year old boy loves hugs and affection.

Question: My 7 year old grandson likes to lean on people or sit in their lap when he watches TV. His dad thinks he needs to stop these numerous instances for affection. My grandson is in a divorced family.


Answer: All children are different, but this is a behavior that is usually seen in younger children and not 7 year olds. It's likely that he is trying to get more affection if he does not get much otherwise, so perhaps if he got attention in other ways he may not feel the need to get it this way.

Hope that helps, I am not really sure what the question is.
