This is from a long time ago, when my older one was four year old. Her mom had a fever. So the little one was asked to stay away from her mom. Next day, the little one also had fever. She said:
Mommy, in a way it is good that I got the fever. Now, I don’t have to stay away from you.
In the current COVID19 crisis, this story just popped in my head. Humans have a natural need to touch other humans. After the COVID19 crisis ends, we may end up with mental health issues crisis.
