Let me tell you that in a study conducted at the University of California in 1997, scientists found that tickling doesn't create the same happy feelings that are created when a person laughs at a funny joke. Tickling just creates an outward illusion that a person is laughing.

2. Tickling is a way to assert dominance:

We all know that a person who is being tickled sometimes loses self-control. The struggle to gain control can be humiliating for the child & can leave unpleasant memories for a lifetime.

3. Tickling has been used to torture people for ages:

Many of the study subjects reported tickling as a type of physical abuse. The study concluded that tickling can provoke extreme physiological reactions in the victim such as vomiting & loss of consciousness due to the inability to breathe.

4. The child may not be able to tell you to stop:

Laughter caused by continuous tickling can reach a point where the person being tickled can no longer breath properly, nor can they say that they are in a difficult situation.
