Please could you help me with an adjective word or any expression used by native speakers of English to describe a child who habitually likes to always lean or rub his or her body against the body of another person especially their parents or other adults, like cats do against the body of their carers or owners?
I used to describe them as clingy child, sticky child or adherent child but I felt like none sounded or communicate well to me. And hence, I came to you for help and guidance. Thank you in anticipation of your help.
