When children are upset or need to unwind, a simple hug, back rub or caress can work wonders. Touch is a very tactile sensation and a personal touch (literally) might be all a child needs to calm down.

Medical staff often encourage parents of very sick babies in the NICU, to touch their babies and may even suggest kangaroo care (skin to skin contact). The sensation of being touched feels pleasurable and soothing to kids.
