When you are feeling down or in over your head, nothing is a better fix than gathering the family together for a big snuggle. Make it become a habit of turning to each other when things get too hectic. If you start to feel like you are all missing each other, call everything off for the night and pile on the couch together. Watch a movie or play a silly game like Hedbanz. The physical contact reminds everyone that they are together. This is our family unit.
