So I guess you won't hold their hands either.

Either that or you don't manually stimulate your lover ?




As far as love...the only thing you will regret in life is the risks you never took.

Re: Kissing your children on the lips.

My parents are 30 years older then I am and we still kiss on the lips from time to time. I kiss my children no less then 100 times a day. Lips, cheeks, foreheads, arms, knees, feet. Ill smack their naked butts and raspberry their stomachs. I plan on acting like this till they tell me to stop.

No I probably don't if I don't feel I had washed my hands really well. And if we had a usual night of sex, I don't nuzzle them or put my face on their face either. And I guess continuing strangeness I won't touch them if I'm wearing my pjs. I know my husbands penis and other body fluids have been on there.

When they were younger, I would grab a shirt off the floor and put it on and hug them before they left for school. But to answer you no. No I don't. I mean I just had it on his penis with spit and pre cum, even though it's dry now, I can still smell him on me.

When they come in from school I have washed my hands many times over and washed my face, put on make up, and brushed my hair, and brushed my teeth, and have on different clothes. So I'm free from bodily fluids from sex. But I still don't kiss them on the mouth.

I wash my hands with soap and water. Not so with my mouth.

Soap and water works well for hands.
Sometimes mouthwash is not enough (mentally)....

No I just don't. Maybe for me, I see the mouth as an instrument for intimacy, thus it looks/sounds bizarre to me. Honestly that's my mental on it.

The physical is germs, especially in the instance of toddlers and young children, my germs are not their germs, and their germs are not mine.

As far as sex in its correlation to the subject, after or even near the same timeframe in a day, no I would not after oral. And even in the event of any sexual activity, hand holding would only occur in a protective situation of course granted proper hand washing procedure had been used.

But to us, not really a big deal, our kids (well most of them) are not really the touchy type... So no big deal.

Your Argument Is Invalid....
....That's Why.

I personally do not see anything wrong. Coming from being raised in a family were a basic hug was a far and few. I am very affectionate to my children who are 2 and 3. I will know at what age where this would be strange.
Is kissing your young children on the lips really that strange?
What radio station was this? That is a little creepy



And if we all think about it ,we greet family and friends with pecks on the cheek, hand shakes and yes even a kiss on the lips, we know where our lips have been and know where another's lips may have been.........don't over think things....human touch is a great gift.

Re: Kissing your children on the lips.

Our youngest is three and a big part of his bedtime routine is to go around the room and kiss everybody goodnight. Not a problem when it’s just the family there (although his brothers 9 & 14 prefer a hug from him) but he insisted on kissing all the ladies who had come over for the WI (women’s institute) planning meeting my wife was hosting the other night.

Whilst my wife is my greatest love my children are my greatest joy.

If Barbara Walters talked about it on the View would it be a little " creepy"?

You know you are right, didn't think of it like that..

I just thought that it wasn't a topic men would discuss on the air.

Sorry

Re: Kissing your children on the lips.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with it whatsoever.

My 14 yr old still kisses me in front of friends etc.

I would say that if the kid decides they don't want to do it anymore - then go with the flow and kiss them on the cheek or forehead instead.

It is NOT a romantic kiss on the lips for crimony sakes - just a peck and perfectly natural to those that wish to do it.

Re: Kissing your children on the lips.

I come from a very affectionate Southern family. While some sections of it actively are light lip-kissers, the overriding majority are not. I have never been an advocate of kissing anyone on the lips except for my wife, or a significant other(GF). And no one else!

Now while I am definitely "touchy-feely," some members of the clan are not. I can hug my oldest son without the least equivocation; the youngest son hates it beyond anything. But I still love him and respect him and he does the very same to me!

To each his own!

P. S. Now as far as my skanky XW is concerned, I'd never touch her lips again ~ I just really don't know where any of those lips have been!

Re: Kissing your children on the lips.

I'm 30 years old and still kiss my daddy on the lips when I'm leaving his home. My mother on the cheek as she's always wearing lipstick. My oldest son is 15 and still surprises me occasionally with a quick peck before jumping out of the car but other times it's an awkward one armed hug across the seats. lol My youngest, a 6 year old girl, still kisses all family on the lips. If we are leaving my parents' house, she has to make her rounds and give "baby love" where she hugs everyone around the knees, tips her head back and strains upward and puckers until the person leans down to her to give her a smooch. (Keep in mind, she's got the physical size of a 3 year old). It's rather hilarious to watch some of the people over 6' having to bend down from the waist 3' as she has their knees trapped.

Re: Kissing your children on the lips.

Kissing babies on the lips is one thing.

Once they are toddlers and on........kissing on the lips is beyond weird/awkward to me.

Creepy to say the least.

But who am I to judge......just how I feel. There is only one person in my life that gets a kiss on the lips, that's my wife. Kids/family etc all get cheek kisses.

I do find it extremely hilarious that American society looks at European man as gay or whatever (I've caught SO much crap over this over the years) when they kiss each other on the cheek.....yet it's completely acceptable to kiss ANY family member on the lips?

Re: Kissing your children on the lips.

I am 38 years old and I still kiss my daddy on the lips. It's not all the time, but I, as well as my sisters, still do it. And, I still kissed my mom on the lips, including the last day I saw her. My sisters, I kiss on the cheek. My sons and daughter, I follow their lead, but so far, the two younger ones are still on the lips. They are 5 and 7. My 13 year old has switched over to cheek, and I'm perfectly ok with that. My nieces and nephew are all on the cheeks. As for any other family members, it is cheek, if anything. Anyway, I see nothing wrong with it, no matter the age.
