I'm just curious if any other moms have daycare providers that kiss their kids? Every morning when I drop off my daycare provider insists on getting a kiss from my kid. I think it is disgusting, she is not family, nor friend, just a daycare provider. This morning I asked her not to do that and she started laughing. I told her it wasn't funny although I appreciate that she loves my kid, she is spreading germs to him and all the other kids and she got visibly upset with me. Does your daycare provider kiss your children? Do you/Would you mind?
Edit- please keep in mind, I am not banning all kissing. We are talking about lip to lip kissing only. I do want my child to be hugged snuggled and have cheek kisses and boo-boo kisses. The only kissing I am referring to is with her asking my son for kisses, and kissing him on the mouth. And it isnt all about germs but this is a large center and he is not the only child she kisses. I recognize that there are germs everywhere but do we not wash our hands, dishes, and tables as well as toys in a daycare to help to keep it down? Isnt the idea to attempt to keep our kids healthy? And cold sores are spread by kissing right? (Just some clarification points here, I do appreciate all your opinions and comments, thank you!)
