Let me start with saying I give my daughter a kiss on her mouth and I find nothing sexual about it. And I can’t recall finding it sexual kissing my mom or dad. But according to Dr. Charlotte Reznick it can be confusing to kiss your kids on the mouth because it’s an erogenous zone.

The author of ‘The Power of Your Child’s Imagination: How to Transform Stress and Anxiety Into Joy and Success’, stated in The Sun: ‘If mommy kisses daddy on the mouth and vice versa, what does that mean, when I, a little girl or boy, kiss my parents on the mouth?’

In my opinion, this woman is spreading incredible nonsense. The next step is probably I can’t put my child to bed or bathe her without having to close my eyes. I mean, I could see her naked and send the wrong signal…

Or maybe, we just should all stop giving natural birth, especially when we’re expecting boys. We all know that baby’s aren’t dropped off by the stork, and we could confuse our little girls and boys by showing them our erogenous zones in such an early stage of their little innocent lives.

After reading the article in The Sun, I became truly curious about how others feel about this. There must be parents who agree kissing on the mouth is not done and may disagree with other things I find absolutely normal.
Do you find it appropriate if your kids see you naked? And if yes, till what age? If no, why not? Are there things your friends do with their kids where you say no to? Do you kiss your child goodnight?

Parenting isn’t easy, and I try my best with our daughter. I’d love to read your opinion on kissing your kids on the mouth…
