Let me explain how the routine normally goes.
- Get up and ready for school (The kids eat breakfast up there)
- Walk up to the school
- Get to school, take the kids jackets, shoes and bags etc off and hang them up
- Say goodbye, normally with a hug and kiss and i love you have a great day
But it seems that the whole goodbye with a hug, kiss and i love you is no longer the in thing to do, since when is it no longer cool to kiss, hug and say i love you to your kids when your leaving them for the day. Alright granted i do it in front of their teacher and most of the kids attending their class but surly there parents do the exact same thing to them?
I recall no longer than 3 weeks ago when i was taking up to daycare that i couldn't even get out the daycare door without them running up for there goodbye kiss, hug and i love you and now i am faced with a half asses hug and a refusal to even acknowledge that i have said anything to them other than goodbye. I try and give them a kiss goodbye like i have done since the day i started taking them up to daycare and these days i am given the top of their head to kiss which they quickly wipe off.
I would understand if they were a bit older, but they are both only 6 years old so has the age limit of your parents telling you they love you and showing some affection in public been reduced since i was a child?
So is it just my kids or is this the new norm for every kid these days?
