DS2 is a big kisser, too. He was nursing last night, and would break off and get up to give me big kiss, then give dh a big kiss, then nurse again, then do it all over again. It was a really cute (although going to sleep would have been cute, too).

DH still kisses his parents on the lips. It skeeves me out but I am the type of person that doesnt even like that social cheek kissing. I kiss DD (2) on the lips with no problems, DS (4) I dont really kiss on the lips anymore.

I kissed my brother on the lips in public when I was a teenager... it got back to my long term bo at the time ... that I was seen kissing some man. I swore that it was my brother and he didn't belive me... and thought that that was disgusting! LOL. I forget that it is weird to some people. I am still surprised to see the lip kissing ending amongst young ones( especially boys) at such a young age.

I would rather have just about anybody kiss me on the lips than endure the social cheek kissing. If any kind of kissing 'skeeves me out', it's that.

I always kissed my kids on the lips when they were really little. At some point Ds decided that he didn't care for it so I stopped. He was around 8 maybe I would say. Dd is 13 and still kisses me on the lips. Ds is very affectionate to me, even at 15, he just prefers to have no one kiss his mouth. (Well, for now. I can imagine a pretty girl will change his mind at some point. )

As long as a child's preferences are being respected I don't see the problem really.

I kiss my dd on the lips. She turned 2 yesterday and I suppose we'll stop if and when she chooses to, but I always have. It's the sweetest to me when she's going to "school" for the day. Gotta get those kisses.

we're lip-kissers. ds is 2.

it's funny because i'm from a not very demonstrative family, while dh is. so it looked weird to me to see dh encouraging lip-kisses from ds, but i remembered dh's family and just went with the flow. now it looks totally natural to me, and i enjoy giving and receiving lip-kisses from ds. it's funny how ds will insist on "real" kisses from me-- he's not happy with just a kiss on the cheek. :-) no telling how long it will last, but we'll let ds take the lead.

Wow, post 48 and I am the first to say no.

I am with the OP's fiance. I don't kiss on the lips other than romantically. My girls are 10, 6 and 3. The 3 y.o. asks for lip kisses at bedtime but it just isn't in my comfort zone.

I grew up in a VERY physically affectionate family - we are huggers I tell you! And sit next to you. And hand on the shoulder when standing near your chair, etc. And kisses on the cheek or forehead. But not lip kisses. We just never did.

I kiss my kids on the lips and still kiss my parents and grandparents on the lips.

The firsttime I ever heard of anyone not was on mdc a few months ago actually.

I kiss my DS on the lips and he's 4. Neither of us see anything wrong with it.

Ditto.

I kiss my dd on the lips. I would stop if she objected. My Dad still kisses me on the lips, and my Mom until she passed. I'm Italian, we're big on affection. Kissing on the lips is very common.

Non-lip kisser here. Sorry but my first reaction to the thought of kissing my parents or any blood relation on the lips "Ewwwwwww!" DH has kissed DD on the lips the odd time. I suppose it's okay while she is still a baby but I don't think I will be able to keep my lunch down if he is still at it when she is 15.

lip kissers here too!

we kiss on the lips here. k didn't like to kiss until she was well over 1 year old, whereas her brother thinks it's a hoot when i say "can you give mommy a kiss?" and gives me a big, tonguey wet one!
i'll keep kissing my kids wherever until they indicate it makes them uncomfortable-- i don't know when that would be, as we're a very affectionate bunch of people.
i still kiss both my parents on the lips. usually my mom, but sometimes my dad, too.

We all kiss ds on the lips, and whenever he wants to kiss a new (to him) person, he gets really confused to be offered the cheek!
MIL kisses my DH and me on the lips and I really dislike it. Guess I'm strictly a lip kisser for DH and DS!

Most of our friends are very huggy and kissy - I have a lot of friends that get a kiss on the lips when I see them. At Christmastime I was saying goodbye to my sister and wasn't thinking and gave her a kiss on the lips! oops. She thought it was weird and said so! (Ew! You kissed me ON THE LIPS!)

My family is a cheek-kissing family, although when we were small we kissed on the lips.

Same here. Shoot, in my family you even get kisses on the lips from aunts, uncles, cousins.... We are mostly Italian, too.

Maybe because all my family, friends, and in laws kiss on the lips.

No kids here, but I'm 23 and still kiss my parents on the lips. Of course I had that "I'm too cool" stage in junior high and would freak out, but I grew up.
