“After a child has established his independence, he will enjoy being treated with a massage again,” notes Calagui. “Allow him to choose his favorite massage time, like before a bath or before going to bed,” shares Calagui.
It’s possible for your child to decline your offer to massage him simply because he doesn’t want the hassle of taking off his clothes and then changing back; respect this choice and assure him that you can still give him a massage with his clothes on. “Also, tap into your intuition and feel free to leave out strokes that are not suitable to his growing limbs,” advises Calagui.
