I hate playing favorites so I try my absolute best not too, and I'm getting worried that I'm giving her a lot of attention, and it makes me sad coz I can't do that. But I wish I can tell her guardian to hug her, just hug her. It does make a difference and even though she is a very defiant, stubborn person, I know that she just needs more love in her life.
So hugs do make a difference, don't let anybody tell you otherwise.
"If you're angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug-which is all the more reason to do so. It's hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that's prpecisely what happens when we hug each other." -Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course, 1997.
