No offense! Do you kiss your child on the mouth?

Maybe it was the way I was raised (meaning we just didn't do it), but I think it's kinda awkward when you see parents and grandparents kiss their children/grandchildren on the mouths...

I admit, when they're young I don't find it strange. It's cute. But once they reach that 5+ mark it's just weird to me...Am I the only one?

*I'm sure I'll get bashed for this. I just want to be clear, I don't mean any offense by it, and I don't find it gross...just awkward. ESPECIALLY GRANDPARENTS.

I *was* raised doing this and find it awkward at times. I've kind of migrated to cheeks and foreheads. I don't judge people who do, but I save my lip kisses for my hubby...

I'd like to add that my dad still does the lip kisses with me, and that's probably why I think it's weird. His lips are too wet, like soggy, eew. I love my daddy, but he can save his soggy kisses for mom.

Yeh, its gross, IMO. Diseases, sickies and bacteria spreads that way and children have a weaker immune system as it is, no need to worsen it. I kiss my kids on the forehead and cheek and we do just fine this way! :)

My kids like mouth kisses, but we always try to divert to cheeks. I was raised with mouth kisses and it wierds me out. Both my parents are smokers and I used to run from their kisses as a kid. I still do. They like mouth kisses as do my sisters. I am also a side hug not a front hug person.
