Parents are not the only one who can do the massage in the family. Children are also taught to do simple massage at the age of six. It is a way of teaching them the joy of giving their time and self to others. They can express their love in simple ways through massage to their parents. As parents,a gesture of little things done by their children is already a reason for them to be happy and forget problems and other everyday stress.
