Do you kiss your kids on the mouth?
I wanted to add my opinion.
My husband's family is not very affectionate at all.
But I grew up with unconditional hugs and kisses. My mom (whom I was raised by) has always kissed us on the mouth.
But my husband didn't grow up that way.
My daughter has been kissed on the mouth by both of us since birth, and has never tried to kiss anyone else on the lips. We never told her not to, she just kind of figured it out I guess.
But I was just curious about how many families forgo kissing on the mouth and why.
My husband barely hugs his mother and father, but is VERY affectionate with my daughter and myself. So I do not thing there are any ill effects from withholding kisses on the mouth. I was just curious as to why some families choose not to do this.
