What does it mean to rub someone's back when they are crying?

A week ago I was crying, and my stepmom pulled me next to her and started rubbing my back. I was crying a lot at first, but I calmed down while she was rubbing it. I wonder what she was doing , and I wonder why it calmed me down? I thought this was something just done to kids?

    What do you mean "what does it mean". That makes no sense. Rubbing someone's back helps calm them and make them feel better. Is that what you're stupidly trying to ask?
