Mom Creates Hug Button For Scared Son on First Day Of School

The Daily Mail claims Louise Mallett, of Ipswich, England, is making headlines for drawing a ‘hug button’ on her son’s hand. She says he was nervous about the first day of school so she drew a heart on her hand and on his and said every time he pressed it they could send hugs to one another

Louise posted; “So, my littlest baby had his first all-dayer at school today. I could tell he was feeling a little emotional this morning so we had a chat and came up with the idea of having a heart each and if we pressed it, it sent a hug to the other one (he said he cried as he missed me on his first half day last week) it totally worked! I drew a heart on both our hands and gave him a spare one on his arm in case the one on his hand wore off , we “charged”‘ them by holding hands on the way to school and when I picked him up I said did you get my hugs and he happily said yep! He also said “I pressed it for a long time Mummy but I didn’t cry,” so I said “Ahhhh that will be that big squeeze I got, did you get my big squeeze back?” and he said “yep!”‘
