I grew up in a family that kissed on the cheek and not on the mouth. Because of germs, drool, what kids have put in their mouths, what PARENTS have put in their mouths (if you know what I mean)... I have never even considered kissing kids on the mouth. I would not want to make my kids sick or vice versa. I wince a little when I see parents kiss their kids on the mouth but would not go so far as to tell them what they should or should not do. To each his own.

The little kids in my family kiss on the mouth. When we say give me a kiss" they just lean over and kiss you on the lips. I guess I've never thought about the germs and stuff, but of course we wouldn't do it when we were sick or anything. I don't see anything wrong with it, but I see what you're saying about passing germs and things along.

I kiss my daughter on the lips every single day. I'll either ask her for some sugar or she'll pucker up and make her kissy face when she wants one. Obviously I never kiss her on the lips when I have a cold, but I'm very rarely sick. She's only been sick once in her life, and she's 2 years old. I think it's a very affectionate thing to do, and as long as you're not coming down with a cold or another contagious disease I see nothing wrong with it.

My kids kiss everyone on the cheek. That is because they understand the germ phenomenon. My best friend's kids kiss each other on the lips and their parents. With the exception of the 10 year old, who is mortified of even holding her mom's hand. There is nothing wrong with either method of showing affection. Because that is just what it is. Affection.

I don't think children should be kissed on the lips, 1) Because of germs - Colesores etc, and 2) I don't want my children kissing any adults or other children on the lips as they need to know what is appropriate or not, and there are so many PEDOES in the world now adays, you just don't know who is or isn't, could even be living next door.
