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

 A butt grab would be ok by me, boob grab would not.

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

there's a happy medium with being affectionate in front of your kids.

like i think it's ok to hug and kiss in front of the kids but anything passed that is something that needs to be kept behind closed doors.

like no french kissing or touching breasts or obvisously not giving bj's or having sex in front of your kids.

you want your kids knowing that when they are in a relationship that it's all right to be affectionate with them and how are they going to learn unless you lead by example?

We are very affectionate in front of our children but as far a grabbing boobs and crotchets absolutely not.

We do give the occasionally butt smack but typically the kids aren't right there.

Our 16yr old ended up walking by the kitchen about the time my husband smack my butt. All she said was wow and kept walking.

We do lots of kisses and hugs - he does a super secret boob/butt grab here and there - we will be the ones whose kids are grossed out - eeeeewwwwww, STOP!!

My dd still thinks of my boobies as hers, she gets overprotective of her stuff!

I am affectionate in front of my daughter, it's how I was raised.. I think it's important for children to see loving parents and not just two partners cause there's a difference in children seeing parents collectively being a family and seeing two loving people who they can one day emulate..my daughter usually just asks for hugs and kisses and then we group hug and tickle fight and other times she just doesn't pay us any mind haha.. As long as you aren't full on groping and slobbing each other down I think it paints a positive picture for children of happy loving people

Quoting Mommynwife26:

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.

this is DH and I.

Yes we're affectionate but not inappropriate. I don't blame you for feeling uncomfortable, I don't think it's appropriate to grope your spouse in front of children.
