My 16month old never kisses me or my husband but kisses & hugs his stuffed animals? When we ask him he just runs any advice?

  • It is a phase that kids go through I would not get upset by it, it is nothing personal. My son is 3 and will not give his father and I kisses yet has no problem giving the dogs kisses, go

  • LoL, my little girl (20 mo.) won't give us kisses unless we kiss each other (my husband and I) We'll tease her with it and then she wants kisses too. Sometimes it works. She used to give kisses freely, but she's stinchie now.

  • Has it become a game? We had a similar problem but then I realized that it was a game to DD to get her to kiss me. When she wouldn't I would chase her to get one. She would run laughing. Just a thought.

  • that is really odd not to be negative but ive studied autism alot and lack of affection is a sign. or for some reason hes just not confortable.
