The Girl Scouts have a message for troops nationwide: don't hug anyone.
The message is being sent to parents of troop members ahead of the holidays.
According to the Girl Scouts, hugs can influence how girls set boundaries in the future.
The idea is to let them decide how and when they want to show affection.
Some parents agree with the message, but say the problem is trying not to make children paranoid or scared.
According to psychologists, the Girl Scouts warning is a good reminder to start talking to your kids early about the difference between good touch and bad touch.
