I found this. I could summarize, but I don't think I can say it better, so here is a quote:
"When we left the program, I talked to my son about “recharging.” I explained to him that sometimes Mama needed an extra hug or kiss and sometimes he might need one. Recharges are non-negotiable. If someone needs a recharge, everything else stops and we wrap our arms around each other and squeeze until we have enough power to last us a while."Can adults do this if there isn't a kid involved? Is this too cheesy for people who are supposed to be all grown up and "know better"*? Because, sometimes, life is scary and confusing and lonely for people who are over four feet tall, too.
*I am not a fan of "knowing better" when it means I have to pretend I am some sort of mistake-proof never-forgetting super-creature of infinite energy. I'm not, guys.
