My daughter is two years old and recently she has started to lick everything that she touches. She started when my husband and i asked her for a kiss and now she does it all the time. We have told her that it is not acceptable and that she can even get sick from it but she still does it. I am separated from her dad, so i don't know if she has learned it over there and he doesn't see it as a problem. Should i think of it as a problem? Is it normal? How do i make her stop?

It may just be a thing she does because she thinks it "funny" or likes that fact that it draws attention, even though it's negative attention.
My DD and DS did similar stuff when they were her age and still does time to time because they think it's funny.
We went through the licking stage...and now they go around "farting" on everyone and everything..... They stick their butts out and make "fart" noises with their mouths..... Of course we are working on how we don't do those things. As far as getting her to stop you might want to try giving her a 2 minute timeout for the behavior and see's if that does anything. (It does help to curb things here)
