Now…Give Your Uncle A Kiss
In light of recent events (at Penn State), I want to discuss an issue, a behavior, that has bothered me for some time. It’s about how we encourage our kids to abandon their sense of self-trust-their instinct and intuition-in order to be polite through showing physical affection to adults.
How often, especially during the holidays, are children confronted with moments like this one: a relative comes to visit and the child’s parents say something like, “Now, give your uncle a hug and kiss.”
And when the child refuses to provide physical affection, or hesitates at the request, they sometimes hear things like, “You’re hurting your uncle’s feelings. It’s not polite. Now, go give him a hug and kiss.”
I think this insisting and cajoling of a child into showing physical affection towards an adult is incredibly dangerous. Whether it’s a relationship between a child and his/her relatives or one between a kid and an adult who is an acquaintance, family friend, mentor, this type of behavior, in which children are expected to show physical affection as a sign of respect, is something I think we all need to be careful about.
At that moment, we are telling them, “Forget about how you feel. Do something that makes you feel uncertain and uncomfortable, so that someone else (an adult) can feel acknowledged and respected.”
I occupy education because:
- The big picture is being shattered into smaller and smaller pieces.
- We need less competition and more cooperation—now more than ever.
- The labels we assign to students (and other people) become our blinders.
- Learning “disabilities” may actually be wonderful gifts.
- We become less human the more we allow ourselves to be measured, tracked, and reduced to bits of data.
- Teachers and students are not robots.
- Imagination—not productivity—is the engine of human progress.
- “Normal” is a myth. Diversity is the truth.
- Humanity will not survive the future without demonstrating compassion, curiosity, respect, and cooperation.
- We can do better. We must.

Great list about why education is much more than numbers and labels.
