Kissing Question 💋

A strange one, which I feel a little awkward about. I read an article recently about kissing your children on the lips, and when this should stop (and how ultimately, you shouldn’t do it). It’s not something I’d ever thought about, but now, I’m thinking about it all the time, and it’s weirding me out! Thoughts from you guys?

My parents kissed us on the lips as kids. You see it a lot in the Mexican culture. When my oldest was born my first kiss to him was on his lips and his dad freaked out. I didn’t care what he said. That’s how I grew up. I kiss my kids on their lips and I will continue to do as long as they are comfortable with it.

I kiss my baby on the lips unless he's drooling and yucky! I will kiss him on the lips as long as we both are comfortable with it. His dad doesn't kiss his mouth bc he feels uncomfortable doing that. No one else is allowed to do it bc of germs though.

I’m not a mom yet, but when my little girl gets here i plan on not kissing her on the lips at all. Only forehead or cheek, I had cold sores regularly as a kid bc my mother gave them to me when she kissed me. I broke out in several bumps on my lips probably every other month. Kids were cruel and I hated the way I looked. I blamed her for years and still to this day put a blame on her for giving me cold sores. So going through that, I swore I’d never do that to my child. Years later, I’m still sticking to that! I don’t get grossed out though when I see other parents kids their child. I wish I could kiss mine, but I won’t risk it.
