HollyMoms — don’t worry about spoiling your babies, they need all the love and affection they can get!

Scientists might have found a way for mothers to prevent their kids from doing drugs in the future, and it only involves the best method ever: A whole lot of hugs and kisses! In a new study, they say there’s a link between a mother’s affection and drug use later in life.

A study released by Duke University and the University of Adelaide in Australia revealed that kids who are given more attention from their mothers may be less likely to become addicted to drugs as adults, according to Daily Mail.

The study, done on lab rats, showed that affectionate mothers can help produce a higher level of an immune system molecule, which could make some children more resistant to drug addiction years later.

There are so many out-of-control stars seen partying and having to go to rehab — maybe some Hollywood moms should have cuddled their kids more when they were younger!
