Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

Are you affectionate in front of your kids?

My dh has random spurts of being overly lovey, while I enjoy it it makes me uncomfortable in front of my dd. Just not he was hugging me from behind and had his hands on my breast and my 2 yr old says "no touch mommys booboos(boobies)" dh thinks it's not a big deal but I hate it! So now I feel like a jerk for being an ice queen towards him

We kiss (peck) and hug in front of the kids but touching like that is when the kids can't see.

Showing your children that mummy and daddy love each other is beneficial to kids. You are modeling what a relationship should be. This display of affection should continue throughout your children's childhood. It will give them a reference. What I do not agree with is the hands roaming to body parts. You could tell your dh to hug you not your body parts. Children should not be exposed to the sexual part of your relationship. I hope you can convey this to your dh and he respects the boundary.

cheers, donna

He will make grabs when the kids backs are turned. We are affectionate in front of the kids. We hug, kiss (sometimes long enough to make the kids say "eewwww") cuddle

We hug, kiss and do a little butt grope as the other one walks by but as for boob grabs or even grabs below the belt, that is saved for the bedroom :)

We kiss, hug, cuddl, smack or grab Burt's but that's about it. Showing affection in front of kids is healthy so ive never felt uncomfortable in front of them. But I wouldn't make out grope or be sexual in front of them.

Yup same here. I want her to see us affectionate towards each other so when she dates she will know what love is. But no, him grabbing my boobs or vag is only for the bedroom, we would never do that in front of her out of respect for all of us.

he doesn't grab on me, but we are affectionate that's good for kids to see how much parents love one another in my opinion.
