my 7yr old has never told me he loves me, never asked for a cuddle or offered a kiss. If ever i ask him about this he makes a joke about it but i am so envious when i hear other talking about getting hugs and cuddles from their children. He shows every other emotion and is a fab little boy in every other way, i just thought all children wanted affection. Anyone else out there with similar experience

Does he let you hug/kiss him?

I usually have to make the fist move with my DSs.

He will begrudgingly let me but wipes his cheek / pulls away straight away. He is otherwise friendly and talkative with me - if I'm honest its me who wants the affection. When you invest 24/7 into loving and caring for them you want a little bit baxk don't you ?
