My 5 yr old saw me hugging my neighbors wife out of courtesy and has told my wife that daddy keeps hugging aunty. He enjoys pulling my leg but I see this as a wrong habit cultivating. What do I do to stop the same?

Hey dear, I personally believe very much in open communication even with our children. Kids will be kids but a 5 year old will be able to understand things pretty much. It old be advisable for you to gently explain to him your actions. Even in cases of other matters. For example, daddy hugged auntie as a form of greeting, at times we shake hands, give hugs to people closer to us or maybe even a friendly hug and kiss. Overtime your child will be able to understand. Exposure in communication is vital. Have fun Chit Chatting with your LO.
