LOVE RULES!

Hugs, kisses, and cuddles can be a perfect cure-all—studies show that affection may boost kids' mood, health, and confidence, says Kenneth Rubin, Ph.D., professor of human development at the University of Maryland, Maximize the power of touch: ■ TRY MASSAGE Baby rubdowns help preemies gain weight faster and improve sleep quality.

I BE RANDOM Tell your child you love her during dinner, riding in the car, or after she makes you laugh.

■ DISCIPLINE AFFECTIONATELY

Touch your kids even when they're acting naughty. If one sibling whacks another, for example, get down to his level, hold his hand or rub his back, and say "We don't hit. Hitting hurts!"

■ GET CREATIVE If your child just isn't a cuddler, you can still connect in smaller ways: Ruffle his hair, rough-house with him (yep, this counts!), dance together, or exchange winks. ■ RESPECT HER LIMITS Try not to smother your child if she's annoyed by it, and don't force her to kiss or hug anyone she doesn't want to (Great-Auntie will have to get over it). You also needn't stress about being Super Affectionate Mom all the time to make sure your child feels loved. She does!
