Teaching Conundrum
Touching Children in the Classroom: Why No Touch Policies Are Harmful 

Rae Pica with Frances M. Carlson, M.A.Ed. and Lisa B. Fiore, Ph.D



Many teachers fear touching children and many schools have no touch policies. Our guests say  that children need to be touched. In fact, they assert that low-touch-teaching  retards children's development and creates social dysfunctions that can last a life time. In this segment  we'll talk  about embracing touching in the classrooms, why it's essential  and consider the practical issues and risks.
