Hey Gang, I have a touchy subject here (excuse the pun). The common rule is *never* touch a student no matter what. Being teachers, we aren't robots, and I think it is not unnatural to show light physical affection. But, the threat of lawsuit always hangs in the air for a teacher, and I've been told to never touch a student in any circumstance or even be left alone with a student to avoid any nasty accusations. What is your opinion on this?
