Dear Esther,

I am a grandparent of 8 grandchildren and have always had a close relationship with all of them. Recently one of our grandchildren no longer wants to give hugs, sit on our laps, or have any physical affection from us. This grandchild is 8 years old and has always been a hugger. We are concerned about the recent change and not sure if we should be concerned.
