WATCH: Adorable boy comforts girl on first day of school
Suffering from back-to-school blues?
You won't if you have a classmate like this little boy called Alston.
Watch him comfort his preschool peer Anita, with assurances that he will protect her.
But his reply to her request for a hug? "I think I'm too young (for that)," he quipped.

The exchange happened in a classroom in China.
The Chinese word for hug ("bao bao") sounds the same as to carry. All together now: Awwwww.
