The education expert Jane Evans, who appears today alongside presenters Ruth and Eamonn Holmes, argued that it was essential to teach children to take control of their own body from an early age.

According to Jane, in the age of the # metoo movement, parents should learn the limits of their children to prevent them from becoming victims of abuse.

Mother of Two, Rebecca Jane, however, struck the concept and argued that we have a generation & # 39; cold, emotionless, and robotic & # 39; would raise children, adding that her recently deceased father would have been destroyed if he could not hug her daughter.

And Twitter quickly overdrive, with many the & # 39; snowflake generation & # 39; if & # 39; ridiculous & # 39; slam shut.

Jane said today: "If I met you in a room, I would not catch you alone, I would ask first – and it should be the same with children."

Asking if it was due to common sense, and the consent rule should only apply to strangers, Ruth replied: "But surely grandparents would only hug their own grandchildren?"

Rebecca added: & # 39; This is absolutely crazy. Where do we draw the line with borders? We are going to raise cold and emotionless children.

& # 39; My father died recently and if he hadn't felt comfortable hugging my child and died because he didn't feel close to his grandchildren, I would have been devastated. & # 39;

Jane hit back and said: “This is a big crisis, it's about everyone Рnot just families Рhence the I movement. Most children are abused by children they know. You just have to specify what you are doing. & # 39;

She added: & # 39; It is more important with children because their brain development is fast and they have to learn boundaries early. It is fundamental respect, not sexual & # 39 ;.

Rebecca replied: & # 39; With families no, with strangers yes. We make a robot society. We must teach children love and affection. & # 39;

And a Twitter survey this morning showed that 89 percent disagreed with grandparents who were told to ask children for permission before kissing them.

At one time the user said: & # 39; OCS has gone mad. Teach them that it's okay to say no, but those with whom you are around, whether they are family or friends, are important enough to give a hug. Grandparents won't be there forever and are the greatest source of what family is! & # 39;

Another added: & # 39; Omg completely ridiculous! What does this woman think? We are British … it is standard. Hug grandma, hug grandpa … put the kettle on, where's the cake? & # 39;

& # 39; Dear Lord. This is now getting out of hand. I wish I still had my grandparents in the area to cuddle & tweeted.

Elsewhere about the viewer said: & We have to show children that affection and hugging are good things and of course. In a world of technology where physical interaction is reduced, this is nonsense & # 39 ;.

Another argued: & # 39; Who is this ridiculous person? My grandmother grabbed and kissed me from an early age and I loved her, so I could definitely see the difference between her and a random odd one who did! & # 39 ;.

However, others did not agree with the slack, with an argument: & # 39; Permission is an important concept and children should have the choice. Autonomy and trust is much more important than tradition. & # 39;

Another said: & # 39; My mother always asks my 2-year-old daughter … "can nanny have a kiss", then it's up to my daughter, usually she gives a kiss, but there is the strange opportunity that she turns away … So yes, children have the right to refuse. & # 39;
