Our prophet (pbuh) greeted children by kissing them on forehead. As soon as his daughter Fatima would come to his house or any gathering he’d get up , greet her and kiss on forehead and hands. And she would do the same.
Today, researchers say kiss in forehead means respect. These little kids are our future and no one can love them like parents. Then, why do we want to discipline them more than love?
When my daughter was a baby I would shower her with so many kisses and hugs but today I hardly get a chance. I often think and wonder will she be embarrassed later on? I hope not.
