If all else fails...
And if all else fails, I suggest this...
Those full-on, massive, bear hugs that engulf you and the lucky other person.
Twelve in a row.
I heard about this on a radio show almost twenty years ago and decided to try it on my Mum. It did work! Though we didn't always have a great relationship when I was in my teens, we laughed a lot after those 12 hugs.
It's a 'technique' - that doesn't quite seem like the right word! - that I still use and, it's got to be said, few things beat a hug.
Teddybears and pillows are also good to hug when willing volunteers are unavailable!
