Concerned mother

Dear Queenie,

My son is almost 2 and sometimes his grandmother, my mother, likes to hold him and hug him and shower him with kisses. Sometimes he just accepts this, but other times he whines and squirms and says, “No,” but she just goes on doing it.

I like to hug and kiss my son too, but if he wants me to stop, I do.

Queenie, should I talk to my mother about this?—Concerned mother

Dear Mother,

Yes, talk to your mother. Affection is not “affectionate” if it is not welcome. Try to help her find other ways of showing her affection than forcing her grandson to endure unwanted “attacks”. And, as usual, I suggest that, if necessary, professional counselling might help.
