A new study out says that time honored tradition of kissing it and making it better, doesn’t.
Working Group on The Study of Maternal and Child Kissing (SMACK…get it??) has just released their findings to the “Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice” and not only does kissing your child’s injury not making it better…it could actually be making it worse.
The study titles “Maternal kisses are not effective in alleviating minor childhood injuries (boo-boos).” found that toddlers whose mothers tried to kiss their injuries to make them better had WORSE reactions to pain than toddlers who didn’t have anyone help.
And once again science takes our time honored traditions of childhood and goes thwwwwwwppppppp all over them!
