Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

Are you affectionate in front of your kids?

Posted by   + Show Post

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

Yes we are.   It is beneficial for children to know that their parents have a loving relationship.

dh tries to sneak inappropriateness in lol.  if ds is looking the other way he'll like grab my boob... i think its cause he knows it makes me mad haha.  gotta love that.

as far as kissing and hugging go, yeah, nothing overboard though.  it was so cute... christmas eve i think it was, my inlaws were over and they were playing a game with ds in the dining room.  dh came in the kitchen and i grabbed him for a "we actually got this ish together" kiss and ds says "there they go kissing each other again"  it was the cutest thing ever and i think important that he sees that kind of affection.

Yes.

We hold hands kiss cuddle in front of her.

Its important for her to see.

He will hug me from behind.

And smack my butt in front of her. She finds it funny and cute.

He will grab and pinch my nipples but not while shes around.

My husband and I show affection in front of the kids. He would hug me from behind when I am washing dishes and etc. We kiss, hug, I sit on his lap we slow dance. I don't feel we take it too far. He don't groop my boobs. Just tell your husband how you feel and what the kds are saying. My kids don't say anything.

Yes we are affectionate in front of our kids and always have been. We are married and teach our kids that affection is a very important part of marriage. Now that they are teens and pre teens it is kind of fun to freak them out when we kiss.

We kiss(long kisses and little ones) and hug in front of the kids. No groping though. I feel it is very important for our kids to see us being affectionate. You should embarass your kids like that,lol. It teaches them what a relationship should be, and helps give them the comfort of knowing your relationship is good.

Big difference in being affectionate and being gropped in front of your kid.

We are affectionate, but we don't grope each other in front of the kids.
